Baby Tears (Micranthemum umbrosum) has small, round, bright green leaves which form thick bushes of foliage. They provide shelter for fry and grow quickly in moderate conditions. This plant can grow tall, but may be pruned to maintain a compact appearance under high light.



Bunched plants are typically sold as cuttings that are bound together with a metal plant weight or rubber bands. These individual stalks can be planted by inserting the end of the stalk into the substrate, either individually or - with some plants - in groupings of several stalks. Most bunch plants do not have roots but may grow roots in time. They can be easily pruned by trimming the stalk at the desired height. The trimmings can then be planted as well if desired. Some bunched plants do not need to be planted and may be allowed to float on the water's surface.

Shed all their leaves and died

by

It took about a month, but both small groups of this that I planted shed their leaves and died. Made a huge mess. Only plant that didn't make it.

Baby's tears

Really nice looking plants.

Waiting to see

by

I ordered two clumps of baby tears and they arrived healthy. At this point, they've died back some but show hopeful signs of future growth. The color and shape of the plant will be excellent additions in my aquarium if and when the plants get established.

when you get them you will allways have them

by

yes

<br> easy to grow and keep. lol
