Pearlweed is a bright green, low-growing stem plant perfect for beginners. It is a versatile species which can be used for both foreground, midground and background. Constant pruning will keep it low growing and spread runners horizontally. This plant grows best with moderate light and CO2 levels around 6-14ppm. However, pearlweed can usually get all the nutrients it needs from a nutrient-enriched substrate and healthy fish colony. For super dense growth, use high light and CO2. Bright light will yield bushy growth, while moderate light yields looser, upward growth. Once your pearlweed is established it will need to be pruned, as it can grow unruly when left unchecked. This plant will tolerate substantial pruning, so you can let it grow large and dense and then trim it into a desired shape if you wish.

Details

Micranthemum micranthimoides

Affectionately called pearl weed due to the accumulation of oxygen pearls at the tip of the leaves. The submerged leaves are pale yellow in colour, which are narrow, bit arched and arranged in opposite or whorls on the stem. The leaves growing above water are more or less round and bright green in colour. This very graceful plant can be set in foreground, midground (most preferable) or in back ground positions. In extremely bright conditions, this plant tends to creep. However, consistent water parameters are mandatory for its sustainable growth. Good ferritization, CO2 rich water, light and stable pH by maintaining alkalinity about 3dKH are mandatory for maintaining its luxurious growth.
