These plants are similar to baby tears. Room temperature, No co2 needed, no special chemicals needed, tap water is o.k, and only requires low lighting. Very easy maintenance. This plant grows 1-3 inches tall. I personally enjoy these more than the dwarf baby tears because it grows 1-3 inches tall, which allows the small fish and fries to hide or rest. These are new and rare plants, so I don't have enough feed back from customers (photos).
