Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'


( Micranthemum tweediei) Wow!! do you want dwarf baby tears but are tired of it dying??? Is Giant baby Tears too large and grows up too fast? If so then you have been wanting this plant. Micranthemum ' Monte Carlo ' as it is commonly called is the best of ALL worlds.. It likes high light but med light is more than enough to make this carpet your tank well. CO2 is always helpful but in no way required for this plant.. It will take hard to soft water and alkaline to acid AND-- get this-- It has a more weeping habit instead of growing straight up. as a carpet in the tank it will form dense carpet and grow upwards.. KEEP it trimmed or the bottom part will die off. However If you attach it to rock or driftwood it becomes dense and hangs downward instead of going straight up.

Leaves are round and somewhere between dwarf baby Tears and Giant baby Tears in size.. Leaf color is bright green and growth habit is dense especially with regular trimming.. Give it two weeks after initial planting for the first trim. Then trim every 2 weeks to keep it dense and green and happy. This truly is an EASY plant..

this is sold as a 4 fl oz portion of stems but I will be offering mat forms very soon!
