I bought some baby tears on Ebay and broke it up into small sections and planted it across my substrate. In about a week, the baby tears has grown elongated leaves and looks identical to pearl weed. Is this even possible?

Baby tears aka pearlweed aka Hemianthus micranthemoides (or Micranthemum micranthemoides - I don’t remember which is the current correct name, not enough coffee yet.)

Dwarf baby tears aka Hemianthus callitrichoides

It’s possible you got the regular baby tears species not the smaller species.
