Baby Tears on Lava Rock

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 Coco Fiber.

    Fish love it

    This looks great in the tank, and my fish love it. I’ve let it grow out about an inch/inch and a half. It provides good cover for small fish and invertebrates.

    Very healthy and vibrant. Another one of my favorites from my order. It will be beautiful when it starts growing in its new home.

    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.
