Micranthemum Tweediei Monte Carlo originates from South America.  This plant produces small round leaves in green color.  This plant is very easy to keep and is absolutely suitable as a beginner plant.  It will thrive in varied water conditions.  It is highly adaptable and it does not have any special requirements. It can be used as a "carpeting" plant for the foreground.  Planting Monte Carlo requires patience as it may be difficult to "keep" it in the substrate when planting.  Unless, of course, you purchase it already grown on coco fiber such as here.  Simply place it in your tank in gravel or substrate and let it spread across your tank. Keeping Monte Carlo compacted and dense may require regular trimming and curved aquascaping scissors are best for that job.

    These mats came in looking phenomenal. No complaints, very healthy indeed as they’ve already begun growing within 2 weeks in a low tech set up. My hats off to you guys

    Healthy, robust monte carlo. I was able to cut the mat in half and start two different sections in my tank. Both still look great.

    Very nice addition to the sand bottom in my tank. The snails absolutely love eating this stuff.

    excellent plant. Full and beautiful. It did lose quite a few leaves but that is to be expected. Great service and product.

    I wanted to try out getting a fiber mat and couldn't be more satisfied. Roots have already started to find its way into the substrate. Very good product

    I ordered this to put in under the thermometer and sponge intake for my tank, all the hard places to vacuum. Works perfectly and looks great!

    Nice and healthy; the mat is a must for this type of plant (bought a similar 'moss' type plant from another vendor without the mat: impossible to plant. Lost pretty much all of it). Good buy, thriving nicely so far - !

    Came in nice and green. Well packaged and shipped on time. I placed it in a holding tank and after a week, there is yet to be melt or any other issues.
