AaronT My point was though, that in the stores it still goes under the name Hemianthus micranthemoides so if you buy that it is the plant you are looking for. Look on that auction site and you'll find tons of it for sale.

:/ I read that too, but I'm not looking for the mystery HM or the round leaved baby tears. Apparently there is a plant that goes under Hermianthus Glomeratus which is a narrower leaved species which will grow to a bush.
The photos on APC are certainly not of the round leaved giant baby tears many of us have now. :O The misnaming and whatever seems to have made it very confusing to ID 3 different plant species.

The narrow leaf is not an emmersed form either as i have round leaved giant baby tears growing emmersed as well. It does not branch and only sends out single side shoots when cut.

aznrice247 I know that they sell Baby Tears HM at Pacific for like 4 bucks for a few stems. They used to hand out wads for 2.50 back then.

I actually started growing mine from 2 small little pieces that got mixed into my java moss. But I still don't have much because i don't use ferts and I'm using FSS, I love these plants. I like these better than HC

jellie Aokashi, if you really really want some, I have. It won't be perfectly clean but I do have.

And I'd love a glob of H.umbrosum. If anyone up there is trimming theirs please let me know

rozdaboff You can get Hemianthus micranthemoides from that smaller, aquatic specific bidding site. The seller is Chambers3530.

sunyang730 Aokashi,

I got the HU one Al's first picture. They are aslo called Giant Baby Tears. They are the one that grow up and not like HM that are runners. I also got what Ed is looking for, the Becopa. They so many different type of them that looks the same. LOL
12-10-2012 04:34 PM
aokashi Yeah.. they have the round leaved ones... looking for the other :/

Monster Fish I had regular baby tears before. It grows nice, even without CO2. Fishtown USA has it regularly.

acitydweller google
12-10-2012 02:28 PM
eeng168 that last pic looks nice...


i googled the name and none of the pics Ive found even looks remotely close to that...

where did you find the pic?
12-10-2012 02:02 PM
acitydweller I have this

Common Name: Baby Tears
Scientific Name: Micranthemum umbrosum




I also have
Common Name: Baby Tears
Scientific Name: Hemianthus micranthemoides




Notice the variation of the leaf shape. Seems that Hemianthus Umbrosum falls inbetween these two types...



Glomeratus is looking more like a bacopa with thicker stems


Bacopa Australis (Bacopa Australis) is absolutely stunning
all this research has peaked my own interests.. hmmm
