Pilea Baby Tears
Baby's tears (Soleirolia soleirolii) is a mat-forming tropical perennial with myriad tiny leaves. It is equally valuable as an outdoor bedding plant and as a container plant and potted indoor houseplant. What makes baby's tears plants so special are the myriad tiny leaves, which form a dense mat suggestive of a gnome's green paradise. Although baby's tears plants are easy for beginners, they require regular attention to look their best. When growing it outdoors, plant baby's tears in moist, well-drained soil in a part shade to full shade location. Despite the reputation for aggressive growth, baby's tears do not respond well to harsh sunlight or dry conditions. But in rich, well-drained but moist soil, the plant grows very aggressively.
