As Tony said, without CO2 and

Keep us updated as you might convince me to try them again.
A good point. Not always true--one could say that fish sellers need happy customers, but they regularly spread misinformation--but probably more true of plants than fish (sadly).
Either way, I'm not in a position to acquire this plant right now. I have no more cash to spend on fish--I just bought a bunch of plants. But I do like to do my research ahead of time. I think I'll hold off on the Dwarf Baby Tears for a while, though. I don't really want to mess with CO2 at the moment.
If I experiment later, I'll let you guys know.
