Microcarpaea is a hard to find stem plant that grows similar to Micranthemum Micranthemoides Pearlweed. It can be grown in the foreground with frequent trimming to keep the growth low as well as placed in the background if left untrimmed. When grown densely, it can create a nice bushy effect and shaped into a ball through regular pruning.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro (literally: in the glass) in a nutrient-rich synthetic growing medium, either liquid or gel, without the presence of any other lifeforms. This guarantees a pest and disease-free specimen, while also providing accuracy throughout the trade.
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.
