Pearl Weed

Pearl weed is a great plant for sucking up nitrites. It grows rather quickly especially when letting it grow vertically. We usually float Pearl Weed for a week or two to let it get some extra light. 

You will receive 1 bunch or pot of Pearl Weed. Usually, a bunch will include between 6 to 8 pieces depending on the length of the stems. 

Main Benefits:

  • Medium light plant for easy maintenance
  • Easy to grow vertically, can be difficult when trying to carpet
  • Helps convert toxins in the water and heavy metals into safe organics 
  • Promotes oxygen rich water
  • Provides hiding places for shrimp and baby shrimp

Scientific Name: Micranthemum Micranthemoides

Care Level: Easy

Lighting Requirement: Med-High

Co2: Preferred

Growth Rate: Medium

Origin: North America

Tank Placement: Foreground as carpet or mid-ground. 

More Information: 

Pearl weed can be floated or planted into the substrate. It is fairly easy to grow when left alone to grow vertically. We do not use any fertilizer or CO2 in our aquariums so the plant is use to low maintenance tanks.

I had ordered the pearl weed and christmas tree moss together, they both arrived in very good condition and thriving very well in my new tank.

Looks good

i haven’t had it long so can’t speak on possible pest (doubt there is any) but seems to be healthy pearl weed, came in a bundle held down with some sponge which was very convenient for planting.

It's pearl weed...

It appeared healthy upon arrival and as far as I can tell none of it has died or anything like that. Stupid snails keep uprooting it but c'est la vie.
