    Micranthemum Monte Carlo

    This was a greas purchase for me. It was beautiful and lush when it arrived (potted) and I live in the PNW- far from Florida where it ships from. All the plants I purchased were packaged very well and arrived healthy. I will only buy plants here in the future. They are healthier and do better than the plants bought from my local fish store. It is doing very well in my tank and is spreading. I had zero melt with this. My freshwater tank is low tech. No CO2 no fancy lighting. I have a decent light and use seachem fluorite black for my substrate. I don't dose fertilizer but I do have a few root tabs scattered in there from time to time. I would highly recommend this plant. I'm fairly new to the hobby so there has been a lot of trying plants out only to have them melt to death and never quite recover, or never really take hold = money wasted. This one is an easy, beautiful, lush plant. Vibrant bright green. I can't wait until it carpets my tank.

    Chose it because it is South American. Trying to give it lots of light and realize it's a slow grower. It's still green and hope it spreads.
