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.

Very healthy and vibrant. Another one of my favorites from my order. It will be beautiful when it starts growing in its new home.
Love them. Need more!
This came in and I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is. It looks wonderful in my tank.
Did not arrive nearly as full as image suggested, but seems very healthy and I am hopeful that it will spread and be happy.
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!
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.
FANTASTIC addition to our tank. We absolutely love it!
Beautiful, healthy plant, firmly anchored to lava rock. In my tank for about a week and it's already propagating. Highly recommended.
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!
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.
