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.

    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.

    Dwarf Baby Tears

    Posted by Sean on 14 Mar 2020

    The plants are great, just 1 day in the tank I’m already seeing growth! However, the plants did not arrive on a Lava Rock as described but on a Coco Mat. A little disappointed for an otherwise great purchase... --Modern Aquarium reply-- Sean, thank you for the review and our sincere apologies for sending them on coco fiber mat instead of a rock. We made a mistake and would like to rectify it for you. Please reach out to us so we can send a replacement order ASAP. Thank you, Rafal

    Healthy little plants... weeks later still look good... I have been adding Aqueon plant food once a week like my local pet shot said and they are flourishing!
