SubstrateSource Hemianthus callitrichoides “Dwarf Baby Tears” forms a dense, bright green “carpet” foreground in a mature, freshwater planted aquarium. Dwarf Baby Tears has tiny, delicate leaves, and does best when provided with a stable aquarium with medium to high light and CO2 supplementation. Once established, trim this plant low to the substrate using SubstrateSource Wave Scissors for tight, low-profile growth. The plant is grown in rockwool growing media inside of a 2 inch mesh pot. Each pot contains a pad of plants that is rooted into the media (approximately 3 cubic inches). Shipping and Packaging: Each pot is individually packaged in a recyclable, clear plastic bag. The plant is shipped, sealed with adequate moisture, but not completely submerged in water. Scissors may be required to open the bag. In the Aquarium: For optimal growth, provide this plant with an established freshwater aquarium with sufficient light, water circulation, and stable temperature. As with most aquatic varieties, this plant does benefit from supplemental nutrients and CO2, but these additions may not be required and depend on your setup and aquarium inhabitants. SubstrateSource Plant Guide: A plant guide is included with this plant. The guide contains brief care and illustrated setup instructions specific to this plant.
