Baby Tears Question
Can you leave Baby Tears floating instead of planted in substrate?

Hi Gerardo,

yes, it will grow differently in appearance but will still live and be fine floating away. When floating after a few months the leafy tops will float on the water line and the stems will look as if they are stretching to the ground. If you have a swift current it is possible for them to attach to the substrate again, but don't count on it.

Hope this helps!
