Details

Dwarf Baby Tears (Hemianthus callitrichoides) is an exceedingly popular foreground plant in the freshwater aquarium.  Its short yet plentiful leaf clusters will cover virtually all substrate, rockwork, and driftwood of even very large aquariums with proper care. 

While not an expert-level plant, Dwarf Baby Tears is a bit more demanding than regular Baby Tears.  It requires high lighting and nutrient-rich water.  While not absolutely necessary, CO2 supplementation is beneficial and will contribute to much faster growth and stability.  This plant will regress rapidly if it does not have excellent water conditions.

Like most plants, Dwarf Baby Tears will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other plant supplements.
