I don't think your light is strong enough for baby tears. It would be easier to use moss to cover the ground. Have seen some start with moss tied to 2in tile squares and end up having good covering.
Example of moss for ground at biggecko thread

I like it. It's a little messy but you'll learn to organize things son.

Are you sure you have a 29? It looks like it has the dimension of a 30G.
