Subject: Baby Tears?
Are you folks talking about B. monnieri? That's the only plant I know that
carries the common name of Baby's Tears. I tend to use taxonomic
nomenclature with plants and fishes, so I get lost with common names
sometimes. Thanks for the clarification.

The plant I am referring to as Baby's Tears is called Giant Baby's Tears in
the trade, actually. It is either Micranthemum umbrosum or Hemianthus
micranthemoides. I took these names form the Tropica Catalogue. My guess is I
have H. micranthemoides.
