Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'

Common Name: Monte Carlo

Micranthemum

Family Name: Phrymaceae

Origin: Argentina

Height: 1-2”

pH: 6-7.5

Care: Medium

Light: Medium to High

Co2: Recommended 

Propagation: Cut new growth along with roots

Growth rate: Moderate to Fast

Micranthemum ‘Monte Carlo” is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from New Zealand.  It is a perfect foreground plant that if given sufficient lighting and nutrients can grow into a thick carpet of green foliage.  The leaves are small and round with a beautiful bright green coloration that can nicely offset any neutral toned substrate.  This plant is very similar to Hemianthus Callitrichoides (HC/Dwarf Baby Tears) but the leaves are larger and in our experience, its generally easier to grow.  When hobbyist are having trouble growing HC, we recommend giving Monte Carlo a try.

High lighting and Co2 injection is necessary to keep this plant low growing.  Vertical growing thin stalks are an indication of lack of lighting while yellowing leaves can mean nutrition deficiency.  Thin leaves can also hint at a lack of Co2.  This plant can grow quickly and require regular trimming when kept under proper conditions. 

This plant can grow submerged or emersed in dry start aquariums and Wabi Kusa.  Because this plant is small with tiny roots, it can prove difficult to keep planted into the substrate.  In this case, dry start can help by allowing time for the roots to anchor into the substrate before flooding the tank.

Excited for plant, DOA

I was really excited to put this plant in my tank and take care of it. But unfortunalty it was DOA.

Hi Brandon, Thank you for your valuable feedback. Plants can sometimes suffer during transit, especially during the summer heat. This is why we offer 100% DOA guarantees on all live plant shipments. Your refund was issued the same day you reached out to us regarding the Monte Carlo. Feel free to reach out to us if you need any further assistance. We appreciate your support!
