There are many different forms of "Baby Tears" this happens to be the regular variety (Not "Dwarf", "HC", or "Cuba"). Its similar to Pearlweed except its leaves are a different structure and don't require high lighting. It will still need a decent amount of light and but can get by with no Co2 unless you want to make it carpet. It can be used both as a midground plant or a foreground carpet. To get it to carpet you will need to heavily trim the stems to encourage horizontal growth. Be sure to replant what you trim off though to get more plants growing.

Most plants are sold as trimmings from rooted plants unless otherwise stated. All trimmings will be at least 3" in height unless otherwise noted.
