A new and promising foreground plant is Micranthemum tweediei. In contrast to the well-known M. umbrosum, this plant does not grow upright, but as a poster crawling on the ground. Therefore this novelty is a very good alternative to Hemianthus callitrichoides with clearly better growth characteristics. The new Pearlwort is especially suitable for aquascaping and for Nano Cubes.
