Often called pearl grass, the Micranthemum Umbrosum is easily identified by its bright green and clustered leaves within most aquatic tanks.
A semi-aquatic plant found in the southern regions of Northern America, the Giant Baby Tears plant is most commonly used in aquatic tanks as foliage. This plant grows quickly and is quite hardy, thriving in both soft and hard water. However, as a light-seeking plant, it does not tolerate high temperatures, hence being an aquatic plant.
The Giant Baby Tear plant will reach heights of 4-8 inches (10-20 сm) and quickly spread if not pruned consistently. You can prune and shape this plant often as it is quite hardy and will continue to grow while being trimmed. Identify this plant by looking for small clover-like leaves in watery places, such as ditches and marshes.
