Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Micranthemum "Monte Carlo" flourishes in medium to high lighting conditions. Adequate light promotes compact growth and ensures a lush carpet effect.

2. Substrate: Plant "Monte Carlo" in a nutrient-rich substrate to support its growth. A nutrient substrate encourages healthy root development and enhances the overall carpet appearance.

3. CO2 and Nutrients: This plant benefits from medium to high CO2 levels. Regular fertilization with a balanced liquid fertilizer provides the essential nutrients required for robust growth.

4. Pruning: Regular trimming helps maintain the carpet's neat appearance and encourages lateral growth. Trim any excessive growth to prevent shading of lower layers.

7. Propagation: Propagate through runners that spread along the substrate. New plants will develop at the ends of these runners. Additionally, established clumps can be divided for propagation.

8. Challenges: While "Monte Carlo" is considered moderately demanding, providing the right conditions, including light, CO2, and nutrients, ensures its successful growth and carpet formation.

Micranthemum "Monte Carlo" is a favored choice for aquascapers aiming to create a carpeted landscape in their aquariums.
