Monte Carlo | 4 oz Cup

Monte Carlo originates from Argentina. It has a delicate appearance with small, light green, oval leaves. It is an ideal plant for the midground and foreground area of the aquarium.

Care & Maintenance

It easily adapts to varying water temperatures and water conditions such as hardness or pH. Monte Carlo can be propagated from cuttings which will then form side shoots, creating a dense, carpet-like, appearance. The plant will grow best under good light. While CO2 supplementation is not required, it will allow the plant to grow faster and more compact.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: High
  • Temperature Range: 68-90°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground, Midground

Monte Carlo looks best when planted in small groups. Using good tweezers will make planting Monte Carlo much easier. Some pruning may be necessary to maintain a dense appearance. 

Monte Carlo is also available as potted or on coco fiber.

    It took me a long time to decide what type of plant I wanted to use as a carpet for my tank. I'm very glad I went with the Monte Carlo. The only problem I had with it was it was very hard to plant and keep it from floating, but it can be done with some patience. 2 containers was planty to fill my 10 gallon with.

    Cups came with very healthy looking plants. But they were cuttings with no roots and very difficult to plant in Ecocomplete subsequent.. Glued some to rocks and tried pushing into substrate but when pulling out tweezers thee plant came out also. Frustrating.

    My monte carlo came in a cup as described. I thought it would be a tissue culture but it's just a bunch of monte carlo scooped up and put in a cup, so there isn't much of a root structure to work with, you just have to press the plant into the soil and allow it to acclimate. The plants came back slightly dry due to the cup not being an air tight seal so I sprayed them with water immediately upon receipt. They were not very vibrant in color and had a slight yellow hue. It's been a week and the monte carlo is slowly regaining its bright green color and putting roots into the soil. They will be healthy, it was just a bit of a less than ideal start.

    Perfect carpet plant. Received (2) 4 oz. Containers which turned out be more than enough for my tank. The plants I receive where very healthy and hardy and are already establishing a beautiful carpeting in my planted aquarium

    4oz is mire than you’d think! All the Monte Carlo came in looking great and are still doing well a week later. I tied some down to lava rock and have some floating in the tank. They both look great.
