Baby's tears (Soleirolia soleirolii) is a mat-forming tropical perennial with myriad tiny leaves. Often confused as a type of moss, it comes from the nettle family. What makes baby's tears special is its dense, delicate mat of fine round or bean-shaped leaves on short, fleshy stems. Baby's tears plants are easy to grow for beginners, but they require regular attention to look their best.

Pilea Depressa are great air purifying plants.

These plants are non-toxic and pet friendly.

Light: Bright, indirect sun. Baby's tears plants will take brief periods of intense sunlight, but look their best in bright, filtered light. Plants growing in full sun may develop brown, scorched leaves. Outdoors, they should be planted in fairly shady locations.

Water: Every 3-4 days. Baby's tears plants are thirsty, and they never like to dry out. If your plants do dry out, you'll notice a dramatic wilting take place. Water them quickly, and within a day they should recover. Baby's tears houseplants will require slightly less water in the winter months. It's fine for the soil's surface to be dry, but the soil around the roots should feel slightly moist.

Pet Toxicity: Non-toxic to cats and dogs.
