Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' comes from Argentina. It has compact, round and fresh light green leaves on creeping stalks and creates a fast-growing carpet in the aquarium. The plant can grow in light shadow, but requires good light conditions, as well as CO2 additive, in order to become really compact.

Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.
I had a cup of Monte Carlo and they're still flourishing in my 60p with medium lighting and 3-4bps co2. Thanks ALA!
