Micranthemum micranthimoids [Tc] (Hemianthus Glomeratus) /Micranthemum micranthimoids is an excellent plant for densely planted beds. It develops a creeping growth habit under strong light and may thus be used as a foreground plant in brightly lit aquariums. This aquatic plant is perfect for creating thick groups in the centre of big aquariums or for the bottom of nano aquariums. If the substrate is kept moist, it can also be developed emergently. It is indigenous to Florida and can still be found in huge numbers in its natural surroundings. It grows in damp locations and stagnant water, among other places. Its emerging shape is a dense, low, light green carpet of little creeping shoots. Hemianthus glomeratus has been in the hobby for a long time and is known by various names. It’s also known as ‘Baby tears’ or ‘Pearl weed’ in stores. Botanically, it was previously known as Hemianthus micranthemoides “HM” and Micranthemum micranthemoides “MM,” but it was recently discovered to be neither of those plants. Hemianthus glomeratus is its scientific name. However, except from a few botanists and hobbyists, it appears that using the correct name is uncommon. Most commercial manufacturers continue to identify their products with “Hemianthus micranthemoides.” Hemianthus glomeratus is a green stem plant with thin green leaves and thin green stems. The H. leaves glomeratus grows in whorls of 3 to 4 leaves and is opposite (two leaves per stem node). Its modest size, combined with its ease of growth, makes it an excellent choice for aquascapers because it can be placed anywhere in an aquascape. Depending on how short you cut it, it can be a dense background bush or a little foreground plant. Pearlweed is utilised to fill the midground on both the left and right sides of this scape. It is an incredibly hardy plant that can grow well even in tanks without CO2 infusion. It is an excellent alternative for non-CO2 tanks. The plant can grow without a substrate if there are nutrients in the water column. It is unconcerned about water parameters. Internodes are shorter and the plant branches more abundantly in tanks with more light. It also creeps along the carpet when there is plenty of light and open space. Because it can be trimmed at any height, the plant may be placed in the tank in a variety of ways. It can be cut to be a short bush only a few inches tall, or it can be used as a longer backdrop stem plant filler. Plant the top section into the substrate after cutting above an internode. New growth heads will arise from the base portion. Over time, older stems will decay and will need to be destroyed and replaced with fresh new tops. The east coast of North America is home to these delicate aquarium plants. This Hemianthus species thrives around river mouths on rocky or muddy terrain. Its loosely upright growth and bright, light green tint are reminiscent of spring. For pruning, all you need is a pair of sharp scissors. Following pruning, the plants grow a large number of new side shoots, making the entire stand appear thicker and more compact. Combine light green Hemianthus with red-leafed variety, such as Alternanthera, to create rich contrasts.Baby tears, known as Hemianthus micranthemoides (or Micranthemum micranthimoids) in the hobby for decades, was revealed to be Hemianthus glomeratus by Cavan Allen in early 2011. The latest herbarium record of this plant from nature is from 1941, and it is now regarded missing and perhaps extinct. Hemianthus micranthemoides was found in fluvial tidal zones on the Atlantic coast of the United States between the states of Virginia and New York. This Hemianthus can be used in a variety of ways. It forms a wonderful carpet in the foreground under intense lighting, and when trimmed periodically, it can be fashioned into a nice bush in the middleground. In tiny aquaria, it can also serve as a colourful eyecatcher in the tank’s background. Hemianthus glomeratus is a highly intriguing plant for nano tanks due to its tiny leaves.

Micranthemum micranthimoids [Tc] is a graceful plant from North America with small, arched leaves that resemble Egeria. It has a distinctive trailing growth pattern in bright light, so it can be used as a foreground plant (stems from 10-20 cm tall, 2-3 cm wide). With its small, light-green leaves, a group of Hemianthus micranthemoides is very attractive. The plant forms a compact cushion in terrariums. Micranthemum micranthemoides was the previous name for this plant.Pearl weed is so named because of the accumulation of oxygen pearls at the tips of the leaves. The submerged leaves are pale yellow, narrow, slightly arched, and arranged in opposite or whorls on the stem. The leaves that grow above the water are round and bright green in colour. This graceful plant can be placed in the foreground, midground (preferable), or background. This plant creeps when exposed to direct sunlight. However, consistent water parameters are required for its long-term growth. For its luxurious growth, good ferritization, CO2 rich water, light, and stable pH by maintaining alkalinity around 3dKH are required.

Overview: This aquarium plant is native to Florida in North America and is a low-maintenance aquatic plant known for its versatility in aquascaping. They make an excellent foreground aquatic plant when planted alone, and when planted in groups after repeated pruning, they make an excellent carpet, midground, and foreground plant in aquariums. It grows well in wet depressions and standing water, and its shoots can grow in both hard and soft water.

Hard versus soft plant: Hard plant.

This lovely plant has arched small leaves that look like miniature versions of Egeria leaves. The stems are 10 to 20 cm tall and 2 to 3 cm wide.It grows best in water temperatures ranging from 20 to 28 degrees Celsius.

Lighting conditions: Although Hemianthus micranthemoides prefers low lighting, it can grow in both high and low lighting conditions. While lower lighting levels promote loose upward growth, Hemianthus micranthemoides grows stunted and compactly.

Micranthemum micranthimoids [Tc] thrives in pH levels between 6 and 7 nk.Micranthemum micranthimoids [Tc] is a versatile plant that can be used in aquascaping. They work well as aquarium plants in the midground and foreground. It forms a compact cushion in terrariums.
