 "Probably my favorite purchase from this shop. Came potted, thick, and incredibly healthy. I can’t wait for it to get bigger!"

-D. Forrest Via Etsy

 Pearlweed is a dense creeping grower that propagates through runners and branches. Quick growing, it is a haven for tiny fish and baby shrimp! This potted variety of "Hemianthus/Micranthemum Micranthemoides" is excellent for bare-bottomed tanks!

Although Co2 is not at all needed, you'll see denser, lower carpeting growth with a higher-tech set up. Keep trimming, for a dense carpet. Pearlweed will get tall and leggy in lower light. 

 Looking for quantities of Pearlweed? Check out our three pack of Pearlweed pots! Perfect for a larger scape. Needing a loose golf ball of Pearlweed instead?

Pots of Pearlweed are well rooted and between 1-3" tall.

Cassandra’s Notes:

We get a lot of questions about separating these sort of plants from the potted rockwool it's in.

Yes, you can absolutely leave the rockwool in your tank!

It’s pretty inert, and will not harm your tank nor its inhabitants. If you want to keep it potted, you totally can!

That said, if the rockwool is really not doing it for you, but you’re worried about disturbing too much of the delicate root system these creepers have built, try this:

Use some scissors to snip apart the top of the rockwool where the plant has rooted from the bottom. Snip into a flat circle, resembling a ‘mat’ of sorts. Now you can place that little mat in the gravel or other substrate, without having torn up too much of the root system!

Growing Suggestions:

  • Medium to Low light needs
  • Low tech, unheated aquarium, 60-80F
  • Fast upright/ creeping growth rate
  • Root tabs recommended: No
  • Excellent forage and shelter!

I keep natural planted tanks, so snails may always be a possibility!

Underwater gem

A pretty light green contrast to the darker plants. It adds a delicate look but has an abundant root system that is definitely not fragile .
