    I bought 1 pack of it from fish shop, they labelled it as Monte Carlo. The first plant is growing straight up, not carpeting at all. The same pack of plant inside has a little bit of the 2nd plant,(much smaller, & it's spreading). If the 2nd plant is dwarf baby tears and it manage to carpet in my tank, why the Monte Carlo can't?
    Yes, it's with c02

    Montecarlo can grow upwards, it seems you have proper lighting since baby tears are growing so the montecarlo should eventually hug the ground just give it some time to grow roots and then trim. Replant the trimmings if you like.

    I have been trimming and replanting for the past few months, the 'MC' dont seems to be carpeting. I have a few of it which I missed trimming grow over 10cm long and its straight up. I thought the plant might not be MC.

    Hmmm. Might be regular baby tears not dwarf baby tears. Regular baby tears grow upwards unless under a lot of light. Sorry hopefully someone else will chime in.

    This is the regular Baby Tears

    Can you take a clearer photo please. I might help if you cut a piece and photograph it out of the tank.
