        Ordered some baby tears and pearl moss and saw one was no good. Quickly asked them if there’s anything they could do to help and haven’t gotten a reply. In the picture is supposed to be the baby tears. Don’t buy from these guys

        Stunning quality

        Have been trying to dry start a tank for months. This is my third try, and thankfully this attempt will take. The success is due to the quality of the tissue cultures I received from APF - just top quality, beautiful dwarf baby tears. I've tried all the usual suspects, APF is the real deal.

        Good quality and healthy amount

        The Baby Tears came in very healthy and you receive a good amount in each cup. It's been a week in the tank and it still looks very healthy and looks to be taking off. I would definitely order baby tears from APF again.

        Dwarf Baby Tears (tissue culture)

        Two generously sized cups of tissue culture DBTs arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Went straight into the tank. Looking and doing great. I look forward to getting more plants from APF in the future.

        Micranthemum Monte Carlo, also known as New Large Pearl Grass, is a captivating aquatic plant that adds a touch of natural beauty to aquariums. With its small, round leaves and vibrant green coloration, it forms a lush carpet-like effect when planted in the substrate. This low-growing plant is relatively easy to care for and thrives under moderate to high lighting conditions.
        Micranthemum tweediei 'Monte Carlo' can be compared with the very popular Hemianthus Calitrichoides, in that the leaves look very similar and it carpets very well too. Micranthemum Monte-Carlo leaves are slightly bigger, ranging from 5mm-10mm. It is a bright shade of green and is a wonderful plant for the carpet.
