Description:

Micranthemum glomeratus is a spreading plant native to North America. If planted densely, Micranthemum glomeratus will grow upright in the aquarium.  If planted loosely, Micranthemum glomeratus will grow in  a spreading fashion.  The amount of light can also influence the growth of Baby Tears.  The highler the light the more likely it is to spread.
