Hemianthus callitrichoides 'Cuba' is very popular as a foreground plant in the aquarium trade. Hemianthus callitrichoides has very small leaves and grows in a spreading fashion making it one of the shortest options for a foreground plant. For optimal growth from Dwarf Baby Tears, as it is sometimes referred to, use high lighting and CO2 injections. Plant several pots through the desired area and watch them spread to form a dense foreground carpet. If you aren't as patient purchase Hemianthus callitrichoides grown on the coco fiber mats for an instant foreground.
