This is true Pearlweed, which is commonly confused with Baby Tears. Pearlweed has more of star-shaped leaves than the regular oval type that Baby Tears has. Pearlweed is an excellent foreground plant to midground plant. Pearlweed will grow very fast in a Med to High Tech tank. You can grow Pearlweed as a carpet by trimming the plant often, or allow it to grow long stems reaching heights of 12".
Planting Pearlweed is easy. You can either stick the stems into the substrate or just tie it to a rock, and it will grow both horizontally and vertically depending on lighting conditions.
