Baby Tears (Micranthemum umbrosum) is a stunning aquatic plant that can be trimmed to fit any layout. Under high light, this plant can be trained to creep along the substrate by initially planting horizontally and trimming any vertical side shoot growth.
Round, manicured bushes can also be created through regular trimming and replanting of the cuttings. These bushes are commonly used in Dutch Aquascapes, but have also found its way into Nature layouts.
