Dwarf Baby Tears | 4 oz Cup

Baby Tears originate from West Africa. The plant's leaves are thick, oval-shaped, and small. Baby Tears' bright green colors contrast particularly well against dark backgrounds.

Care & Maintenance

Baby Tears are tolerant of a wide range of water conditions, hardness, and pH. Baby Tears will undoubtedly look their best under ideal conditions which include good light and substrate as well as proper fertilization.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate-High
  • Temperature Range: 68-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground, Midground

Baby Tears is an ideal foreground plant and should be planted in open areas where it can have good access to the light source. It can also be attached to hard surfaces such as rocks and wood. It will look best if kept short and compact with regular pruning, using sharp aquascaping scissors.

Dwarf Baby Tears are also availbe on Lava Rock and on Coco Fiber.

    I had an algae outbreak in my tank and these plants helped clear that problem and now my tank is crystal clear.

    My Betta Loves His Baby’s Tears
    Posted by Sara W. Robinson on 22 Nov 2021

    My betta loves lounging on a floating duvet and his had gotten rather tattered. The plants arrived in great shape, and my fish has the perfect place to rest in his aquarium. Very pleased with this company. I now have a second aquascaping project and bought all my plants from Modern Aquarium. Very impressed!

    My dish had somewhat smaller than expected clump. It seemed very healthy and robust. Dense. This worked to my advantage as I purchased it as a Small Bonsi driftwood tree, top foliage piece.. After only one day in the tank it spruced up to a vibrant brite green and the little leaves are pushing upward. This turned out better than anticipated. Love it in my well planted tank.

    I am very pleased with my order of Baby Tears. They were well packaged and in excellent condition. Hopefully, I won't kill them. They look great in my 6.5 gallon aquarium with 4 corys.

    It arrived in great condition. I was concerned about the below freezing temperatures outside. So thankful it hadn’t froze.

    My Baby Tears Swarf arrived green and healthy in a cup. Shipping was pretty fast over the New Year Holiday. The plants cover about 3 square inches, perfect for the floating "Betta Bed", that I am preparing.

    A little hard to clean before putting in tank
    Posted by Cindy Boedefeld on 10 Dec 2020

    I was tired of buying stuff from the pet stores in my area in St. Charles MO. I tried to buy online through Amazon and was never really impressed with many of the plants I paid for. I found this store in New York with good reviews on their plants and went for it! I am very impressed with their directions on doing a quick bleach dip before putting the plants in your tanks. I have 4 tanks that I put multiple of their plants in and I have not found any snails or any critters in my of tanks (awesome). I did find some when cleaning them/dipping them beforehand so it is really important to read their instructions! The plants are doing well and I have had them a week. I did find it difficult with these plants to do the washing since they are so small. I put these plants in my tank with my African Dwarf Frogs/Betta and they all seem to do well with it. I have found one of my frogs hanging out in them since they are floating plants. I feel they give you a lot of plant for a "bunch" and the packaging/delivery was great.

    These arrived in perfect condition. Don’t let the cup size fool you, there is a lot of plants packed into the cup. Getting them rooted and attached to something will be the next hurdle.

    Loved applying this product as grass to faux rocks in my new planted aquarium. Easy to work with and healthy greens
