Micranthemum Monte Carlo - Tissue Culture Cup

Micranthemum tweediei 'Monte Carlo' can be compared with the very popular Hemianthus Calitrichoides, in that the leaves look very similar and it carpets very well too. Micranthemum Monte-Carlo leaves are slightly bigger, ranging from 5mm-10mm. It is a bright shade of green and is a wonderful plant to the carpet. A great alternative to HC. It does not need as much light as HC and is considered slightly easier to grow. Good levels of CO2 will ensure this plant does well.

    APF never disappoints. Arrived well packed and healthy. Wouldn't buy anywhere else.

    Arrived healthy, died in my tank

    I have over ten years of aquascaping experience. While I have had great success with potted Monte Carlo I did not have much luck with this tissue culture. It slowly turned to brown mush in my aquascape. It looked plenty healthy upon arrival. It might be due to the fact that I use soil based substrate without co2. I believe that tissue culture plants acclimate more successfully in high tech tanks.

    Healthy Plants

    Ordered Monte Carlo and S. Repens. They arrived pretty quickly this week and they were healthy. I'm glad I found APF on Google. Waiting to see how they do in my aquarium.

    Shipping was fast and the plants all arrived in great health! This will now be my go to source for plants. Can’t wait to see how they grow!
