Again one of the most popular planted aquarium plants, this little beauty will transform your tank. The Hemianthus callitrichoides originated from Cuba, west of Havana and is one of the smallest aquarium plants. With round leaves that are only millimeter's in size.
If planted in clumps a few cm's apart it will spread rapidly creating a carpet look over the bottom. Lots of attention required but the reward is definitely worth the effort.

Very healthy plant upon arrival and well packaged. I really struggle with growing baby tears, I've had some success but I never manage to get the carpet that I'm trying to grow. This is no reflection upon the quality of the plant.

I received more than i needed and it just started taking to the tank as soon as i planted it now its started a wonderful carpet across my 20L tank that my cherry shrimp love. I'd love to put it in my 150L but worried my pleco would demolish it. I would highly recommend this plant.

I planted Hemianthus Callitrichoides because my clown loaches pulled up my Glossostigma elatinoides. It grows quickly and my clown loaches don't pull it up. I have a tank with CO2 and high lighting levels. As always from Aqua Essentials the plants arrived in excellent condition. There was a lot of the plant in the pot so I was able to split it into many pieces which are growing well.

Ordered at 4pm on Thursday and received in enough bubble wrap to protect a Fabergé egg on Friday morning at 9am. The plants are great quality (as expected with Aqua Essentials). I never go anywhere else for equipment and plants anymore. It was worth the week's wait for these to come in stock. Thanks again!

This site its just amazing. totally love it. I love the pictures of the plants, I love the way they come packed,I love the way they look healthy and I love the way they smell! just a shame I just found this site with so many beautiful different species after getting almost my plants from local shop. now I want to get more but have no much room left. makes me want to but another tank just to try a few nice species and see them grow. the item is as described and its dispatched quickly and arrive fast and comes very safely packed and plants still fresh and healthy. best easy site for aquatic plants. my favourite.

As ever great service, great plants, brought instant life to my new tank, being pumped with Co2 growing really well, can’t recommend them highly enough, I won’t shop anywhere else now, well if you get the best why would you go anywhere else.

Arrived in great condition, with plenty of it! I was very pleased with the amount I received after ordering 2 portions. A little fiddly to remove from the rock wool but otherwise I had no issues planting them in my tank.

Good compact pot and a quality, healthy plant. Easily breaks down into 10 smaller bunches to be distributed around the aquarium. Again, something my Fancies and Comets seem to be leaving alone for the moment.

Arrive alive and well. Packaged securely. Very fast delivery. Seems to be doing fine in the tank after a couple of weeks. Very happy with it.

5 stars for condition on arrival. I have yet to discover how it fares in my aquarium. I have tied it to some rock as shown in a recent video on AE . An experiment, but after one week it is still there and appears to be growing. Will update in due course.

lovely little plant - came very well packaged - no damage at all, it is thriving in my tank.
Date Added: 12/02/2014 by Ian Bielby
I got the plants from a company called “Aqua Essentials”, (aquaessentialsl.co.uk) I’ve never used them before, I have no links to the company, but I can’t recommend them more highly, the plants are great, the service is perfect, (next day) they sent me a full colour brochure listing all their plants with pictures, they stock all your plants needs in one place.

Great plant, perfect condition, possibly because I collected rather than post but an awesome plant all round
Date Added: 30/12/2013 by Andrew Culley
a little smaller than I expected but that is not their fault, I had just never seen one before. The plant was a nice bright, healthy green and I honestly couldn't of asked for more! I will definitely buy here again!

Once introduced to my aquarium and split, HC is thriving and spreading - no doubt due to CO2 injection and regular fertiliser dosing. Plants from Aqua Essentials are the healthiest I've ever bought from anywhere. Excellent value for money too.

Arrived quickly and in lovely condition, but I think my cold water tank is unsuitable for it. Was hoping it would survive/thrive, but unfortunately I think it is on its way out!

It came well packed, and perfectly healthy, just waiting on them to grow and grow and create a wonderful carpet.
Date Added: 14/10/2013 by Robert Gray
The plant was very good condition. I found it difficult plant in tank which is a fish tank. I am at present trying to establish out of tank.
Date Added: 10/10/2013 by Paul Said
Very nice addition and spreads quite well in a short time. "Cuba" is very distinct and beds lovely over time, remember that cuba NEEDS CO2 and is a more advanced plant, but worth the effort.
Date Added: 15/09/2013 by David Linthorne
Arrived in top class condition, and settled well after planting. It grew so well in fact that it now covers the floor of my modified fluval edge which is exactly why I bought it!

This is a great foreground plant. Need more attention than any other plants. Hard-to-find grow but best foreground plant ever.

This is a great foreground plant, and I would say it needs more attention than any other plants. Not easy to grow, but the best foreground plant ever.

Date Added: 28/05/2013 by James Nicholls
Absolutely fantastic specimen, i have ordered 10 of these in total now and all HC have been healthy, established, very deep green, very well grown and also the roots are very white in color with no discoloration. One of the HC was almost the same size as the pot! The Staff are incredibly polite and very helpful with the technical issues/concerns. I made two separate orders within one night, Aqua Essential (AE)actually combined the order, changed the delivery type to have a much faster turn around and then gave me the rest of the money back in voucher points!!!! I am sold on AE as an organisation and will be going to them for any future plants! Thanks again, Regards, James
