There are many different forms of "Baby Tears" this happens to be the HC or Cuba form. Its one of the smallest aquatic plants in the hobby. It is very demanding for good like and co2. This plant is used in a lot of aquascapes you see as a beautiful foreground plant. It will produce runners to fill in areas and is best left undisturbed.
Scientific Name: Hemianthus Callitrichoides
Sold As: Potted or Stem
Care Level: Difficult
Lighting Requirement: High
Growth Rate: Fast
Tank Placement: Foreground as carpet
I have had my batch growing in a 5 gallon shrimp tank with liquid CO2 added weekly for two weeks now. New roots growing and looks like it's going to carpet eventually.
Beautiful little plant. Came a decent size. Growing rapidly. Definitely will order from Flip again.
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!
Everything came in healthy and alive and everything is doing great
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.
