Hemianthus callitrichoides is one of the smallest aquarium plants in
the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If
planted in small clumps a few centimetres apart, it will spread rapidly and
cover the bottom like a carpet. Hemianthus callitrichoides is an
attractive foreground plant for small aquariums, and makes few demands. Found on
Cuba west of Havana.
