Baby tears

Beautiful little plant. Came a decent size. Growing rapidly. Definitely will order from Flip again.

Healthy & Thriving

The Dwarf Baby Tears were healthy and full of color, but on the smaller side. No melt or die off in the first week and seem to be taking off well. It takes time for these little guys to grow but I expect a nice spread soon. Will definitely be ordering again!

Good Overall

The plants were packaged well and arrived alive, but there were not as many healthy sprouts as I thought there would be based on the pictures. But, overall, I got a good amount that were good quality.

Very tiny amount was brown on arrival

I was very unhappy with the look of the plant and the amount was very tiny. It was not enough to plant in a nice patch together. It was no where near the amount or as green as a picture in another review.
