Pearl Weed

Scientific Name: Micranthemum Micranthemoides

Common Names: Pearl Weed

Pearl weed is a great plant for sucking up nitrites. It grows rather quickly especially when letting it grow vertically. It can be floated or planted into the substrate. 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.
