Baby Tears - Carpeting Foreground Plant
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.
Received my plants in great condition.
Got way more then expected and packaging was awesome will deft buy from again thank you so muxh
Plant is beautiful and came in perfect. Large portion and healthy. Could not ask for anything more.
These have my tank come alive! So vibrant and full! I can't wait to see it grow and take over the bottom.
I was a little concerned about ordering plants when the temperature here in North Dakota has been below zero for highs, but the plants arrived nicely wrapped up and with the heat pack and look great. Thanks Dustin!!
