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.

Use 1 pot per 15x15cm area

Arrived in plastic, soaking and rotting. It died after 1 day. You are meant to keep keep the soil of a Baby Tear's plant moist but never soggy. If the soil stays too wet, the stems quickly rot. This may have been down to it being in transit for longer due to COVID, but still pretty unimpressed.

My 2 Baby Tears have been planted and are sat doing nothing, but they are still alive so only time will tell.

Excellent plant, followed the video instructions to divide and plant. The plants appear to have taken in my aquarium.
