Helxine soleirolii (Baby Tears)
Helxine soleirolii 'Baby Tears'
- Light: Bright, indirect light is best but it is adaptable.
- Water: Keep soil moist but not wet. Do not let soil dry out.
Baby's Tears plant gets its name from the tiny, round leaves cascading down slender, fragile stems. It is a great carpeting plant for terrariums but it can be smothered by larger plants so make sure the bigger plants don't crowd the Helxine too much.
