Product Description

Dwarf Baby Tears plant drapes your aquarium with elegant leaf clusters. ( These are nice plants!!!)The smallest of known aquarium plants, Hemianthus callitrichoidesis an ideal foreground plant. If regularly pruned, this bright green South American native can also be floated at the water's surface. Either way, it creates the ideal location for spawning fish to hide their eggs and active bottom dwellers to forage for food.

Native to Cuba, Dwarf Baby Tears will eventually form a dense carpet over your aquarium substrate when planted. Some plants take time to establish themselves; however, once ideal conditions are met, this plant fills in well.
