Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate

Temperature Range: 68-82° F

Tank Placement: Any

Baby Tears, also known as Dwarf Bacopa or Bacopa Monnieri, originates from West Africa.  This plant is ideal foreground plant and should be planted in open areas where it can be kept short and compact with good lighting and regular pruning.  It can also be attached to hard surfaces such as rocks and wood.  The plant's leaves are thick, oval shaped and under 1 inch long.  Baby Tears' bright green colors contrast particularly well against dark backgrounds.  This aquarium plant is tolerant of wide range of water conditions, hardness and substrate but will undoubtedly look its best under ideal conditions with good fertilization and lighting.

    Thin, but healthy

    Did not arrive nearly as full as image suggested, but seems very healthy and I am hopeful that it will spread and be happy.

    My favorite plant

    Posted by Vicky Gallman on 19 Aug 2021

    I wasn’t sure about getting a plant already growing on a lava Rick but this has turned out to be my favorite plant in my tank! I only wish I would have gotten more!

    Looks really good.

    They came well package. Have a nice green color to them. One day in my aquarium and they looked beautiful. The lave rock sets it off. My snails like sitting on the lava rock. Good investment for my aquarium.

    Great accent piece for any aquarium. Arrived with vibrant color that is still vibrant weeks after placement. Ordered more for my other aquariums.

    Delivery was delayed as a result of high volume Xmas shipping . Some of the growth brown at edges. In tank and looks like a full recovery is under way

    Beautiful, healthy plant, firmly anchored to lava rock. In my tank for about a week and it's already propagating. Highly recommended.

    Better than expected

    Posted by Susan L. on 2 Oct 2020

    Very pleased with this plant/rock combo. I have the similar rock in a larger version with no plants attached to it. I was pleasantly surprised it "matched", so added bonus for me. I have had difficultly keeping this plant "planted" anywhere in my substrate in the past. Never thought to affix the plant to a rock... It is doing great in the tank. Love to see the pearling action - makes it sparkle in the tank. Easiest "planting" effort ever!

    Small Lava Rock

    Posted by Eric on 21 Sep 2020

    The baby tears are just stating to grow the lava rock is on the small side but it looks nice in my aquarium I would buy again.

    Delightful and met expectations

    Posted by Melinda DeCoste on 8 Sep 2020

    I received these cute little beauties on brownish-orangey-looking lava rocks. They arrived slightly yellow in sections, but that's not surprising considering the humidity in Georgia. They look great in my 5 gallon tank: I placed one on top of the Blackwood (purchased on this site) and another one in the foreground on the substrate. They have been in my tank for a couple of weeks and are growing quickly.
