The Nettle 'Baby Tears' Story

Where is it from? 
The Nettle 'Baby Tears’ is from Central and South America

Who is the Nettle 'Baby Tears'? 
This plant has a relatively easy-going nature and often isn’t phased by much. Even if it does experience a small period of direct light or drought it will bounce back from the smallest of stems! Watch as the new leaves come in a bright burgundy color!

Good For You!
Dust catcher! The unique foliage is great at catching and holding dust particles. Easily rinse the leaves off with a showerhead every few weeks. 

Is the Nettle 'Baby Tears' the right plant for me?

This plant is perfect for everyone! They are proficient growers and can handle most household environments without a problem! They work well in terrariums with taller plants, they like to creep along the bottom and show off their leaves.

Pet Friendly: Yes, These plants are safe for pets and kids. 

Location Suggestions: This plant does really well as a kitchen plant or in the bathroom! Try placing a small plant in a terrarium for an interesting look. Place your larger plants in a macrame hanger, this plant will cascade down rather quickly.
