Baby Tears is a rocking plant if given the right conditions. BABY TEARS IS NOT A BEGINNER PLANT. Baby tears is one of the plants that you get after you have had success with a dirted tank. NOT RIGHT AWAY. With that warning given, if you are looking for a killer foreground plant for your rocking dirted tank, give Baby Tears a shot. It takes it a second to get going but once it hits a dirt substrate it will start to rock.
I have found that it enjoys a slightly finer grade of substrate. Get 12-15 long stems of Baby Tears for $8 ( I personally cut it down into 1/3s and plant the smaller clumps. If we are uprooting this you might get shorter plants with more root mass. You can see the grow out tank we grow it in. Nothing fancy- Pool filter sand over dirt and good lighting, like our LED LIGHTS :) Killer plant for a dirted tank with slightly higher lights and a fine substrate.
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Difficulty: I give this a 3.5. Baby Tears needs good lighting and it needs nearly perfect conditions to get going really hard.
Lighting: Suggested High lighting and can handle Moderate lighting but will likely not grow quickly at all unless it is in a HIGH light set up.
Even more than pictures can describe. Beautiful plants. Look amazing in my tank
Arrived in excellent condition. I planted them and a week later they are still doing wonderfully.. no melting.
Small but mighty. I have a low bio-load right now, but these plants are starting to take off. There was a little bit of dieback/melting, but plenty of new growth that's spreading quickly.
Adds a really nice texture. Individual stems took a while to plant but it already looks great
Plant arrived in great condition, placed I'm tank and looked perfect immediately. Adorably cute little leaves- definitely will buy more!
