Hemianthus micranthemoides is a graceful plant whose small, arched
leaves make it look like a miniature version of Egeria. It has a
characteristic trailing growth in intensive light, so it can be used as a
foreground plant. A compact group of H. micranthemoides is very beautiful
with its small, light-green leaves. In terrariums the plant forms a compact
cushion. Used to be called Micranthemum micranthemoides.
