This week we are featuring the wonderful house plant that is baby tears. This plant, scientifically known as Helxine soleirolii, is often used in terrariums and bottle gardens. It is a low growing plant with many tiny, round leaves, which is what the name baby tears originates from.
Baby tears likes to grow in an elevated humidity level, which is why it flourishes in environments such as terrariums. Baby tears does best in a place with moderate daylight, so make sure your houseplant is near a window. It also needs good air circulation, so make sure that if you put it in a terrarium to leave it uncovered. You can come get your own small pot (the ones pictured in the top left of this article) of baby tears down here at the store for $4.99!
