Description

Micranthemum umbrosum is a delicate light green bushy stem plant with small round leaves. It is most attractive when cultivated as a dense bush in the fore- and middle ground. A relatively strong lighting with at least 0.5 W/litre is required for good growth, all in all, Micranthemum umbrosum is not very difficult in cultivation.

Micranthemum umbrosum is native to most southeastern US states, from Texas to Florida and Virginia, where it grows in ponds, ditches and rivulets, in many areas it is emersed in summer and submersed in winter. It is also found in parts of Central and South America.
The Shade mudflower may be known in the hobby for quite some time, but has gained popularity recently since aquaria that meet this plant's requirements have become more common.

Sometimes M. umbrosum has difficulties adapting to a new environment, but once acclimated it is not a very demanding plant, apart from its hunger for light. A relatively strong lighting of at least 0.5 W/L is required for good growth. A lack of light results in the plant throwing off its lower leaves, or in holey leaves. (read more)
