Creeping Mint Charlie or Micromeria brownei is a true submersible aquatic plant that is light green in color and has rounded leaves. It is usually placed in the middle to rear of the aquarium and is stimulated by cuttings. Simply cut the top of the plant to prune to desired height, and replant those cuttings. If allowed to grow all the way to the water’s surface, it will want to flower, but it will also become leggy or bare at it’s base. Pruning will keep it full. If installing in a pond, plant near water’s shoreline about 8″ deep (You may plant it up to 24″ deep) by simply placing a rock on the bundle of plant and allow it to grow and creep up on shoreline. This plant is sold in bunched or potted forms from our nursery.
