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.
