Micranthemum Sp. Monte Carlo Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer

Micranthemum Sp. Monte Carlo Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer


Item #: JB2238

Temporarily Out of Stock

Micranthemum spec. `Monte Carlo` is a new, promising foreground plant. The name of this variety comes from the Argentinian city of Monte Carlo in the province of Misiones. In contrast with M. umbrosum, this plant does not grow upright, but creeps along the bottom as a cushion. This makes this new variety a very good alternative to Hemianthus callitrichoides `Cuba`, with much better growth habits. This new pearl grass is ideally suited for aquascaping and perfect for Nano Cubes.
