When you enter a garden centre to buy plants for your garden, the most important thing is to consider size, width and maybe colour of how the different plants look fully grown. Many of the plants you choose are maybe bulbs, young plants, small fruit trees and even seed. The largest concern is for you to get high quality rooting and plants which are free from any possible disease!It's exactly what 1-2-GROW! plants offer for your aquatic environment. Grown in sterile conditions, free from algae, snails and pests the 1-2-GROW! products offer you a sound start for your tank.
Compared to normal aquatic pots, you also get lots of plant material per cup. Like building up a new garden, you need to be patient to see it grow. It's exactly the same with 1-2-GROW! Plants - but it's worth waiting for!
Carefully remove the plant from it's tub and wash off the growing media in clean tap water.- Use very sharp scissors to cut the plants into 6-8 small sections.- Use tweezers to plant your new plants and just watch them GROW!
Description: Tropica’s Elatine hydropiper has changed its name! DNA-sequencing of the plant shows that the genus is Micranthemum. The commonly used name 'Monte Carlo' will be applied until the species is determined. The content of the cup is the same, now with the name Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'.
Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' comes from Europe and Eastern Asia. It has compact, round and fresh light green leaves on creeping stalks and creates a fast-growing carpet in the front of the aquarium. The plant can grow in light shadow, but requires good light conditions, as well as CO2 additive, in order to develop optimally and become really compact.
