Went to my LFS this morning to see if he had any Hemianthus callitrichoides (dwarf tears) but he didn't have any and isn't doing another plant order for at least a fortnight :(

Went on Ebay just now and got three lots coming for 10!!!! woo hoo!!!

Congrats and good luck with it. Planting it can be a load of fun.

WoW!! I like that stuff. What kind of light does it need?

Looks nice eh? Aparently needs Med light but some claim it will be fine in low-med.

I'm really not looking forward to planting it though lol.... better look out my tweezers!
