Dwarf Baby Tears plant drapes your aquarium with elegant leaf clusters. The smallest of known aquarium plants, Hemianthus callitrichoides is an ideal foreground plant. If regularly pruned, this bright green South American native can also be floated at the water's surface. Either way, it creates the ideal location for spawning fish to hide their eggs and active bottom dwellers to forage for food. Native to Cuba, Dwarf Baby Tears will eventually form a dense carpet over your aquarium substrate when planted. Some plants take time to establish themselves; however, once ideal conditions are met, this plant fills in well. For optimal health, H. callitrichoides requires bright, direct lighting and a rich nutrient base. Provided lighting and nutrient criteria are met, Dwarf Baby Tears is generally not finicky about care. The plant propagates via runners that branch off of the root area. Cuttings from a mature plant can also be repotted and positioned in other areas of your aquarium. Care Level: Moderate Lighting: High Placement: Foreground Water Conditions: 68-82° F, KH 0-10, pH 5.0-7.5 Propagation: Cuttings, Runners Max. Size: 6″ Color Form: Green
