How to Plant

Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets mostly shade, in well draining soil. We recommend planting in 7" pots or shady window boxes.

When to Plant

Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.

When to Expect Blooms

We're here for the foliage. Tiny white blooms might appear early summer.

Care Instructions

Water regularly.  Do be sure to keep the soil evenly moist, but not saturated.

Extra Credit

Baby's Tears can be easily propagated by cuttings.
