Pearl Weed (Hemianthus Micranthemoides)

Updated: October 4, 2022 | Aquarium Plants

Pearl Weed is a popular foreground carpeting aquarium plant. It’s not as hardy as Anubias or Java Fern but still doesn’t require C02 to grow.

The biggest annoyance is how fragile the roots are. While trimming, you could easily unroot them, which can be frustrating. You’ll want to dose them with fertilizers and a good amount of lighting.
