Hemianthus callitrichoides 'Cuba' is very popular as a foreground plant in the aquarium trade. Hemianthus callitrichoides has very small leaves and grows in a spreading fashion making it one of the shortest options for a foreground plant. For optimal growth from Dwarf Baby Tears, as it is sometimes referred to, use high lighting and CO2 injections. Plant several pots through the desired area and watch them spread to form a dense foreground carpet. If you aren't as patient purchase Hemianthus callitrichoides grown on the coco fiber mats for an instant foreground.

Perfect Carpet May 30, 2014
Reviewer: Alex Anderson from Hopkinsville, KY United States  
I ordered several potted dwarf baby tears in March when I started my dry start method of my aquarium. Let me say they did very well and spread very nicely over the substrate.  Now nearly June, I flooded the tank and have a great carpet bed that my RCS and Kuhli loach love to play in it.

Its great to see them pearling in the tank and watching it grow. I do recommend future owners that you have high lightning and a Co2 source. It will greatly aid in the success in growing a carpet of baby tears.

Reviewer: planted tank from PA United States  
These arrived in very good condition, have spread and grown well. I have order many plants in great condition from this site and never saw any snails or anything bad. I highly recommend them.

Very nice February 15, 2013
Reviewer: Christopher Newland from JBAB, DC United States  
This is a very nice plant, kinda hard to get to hold root and sometimes pieces of it float off but thats OK.  Snail free.

10 Pots growing well December 18, 2012
Reviewer: Charles King from Cross Lanes, WV United States  
I ordered 10 pots of these to cover the front half of my 75 gallon.  I was expecting to need to order more, but the pots were growing over the edges a great deal and had many more baby tears than expected.  I managed to cover about 50% of the surface I intended to cover with only 9 pots, the other pot is still growing and I will probably use it as filler later on.  After three weeks the HC is growing in nicely, I have very few floaters as the root system on these pots was great and I was able to plant them securely in my substrate.
