Solanum 'Baby's Tear'

$ 18.00
Size: 4" Pot
Living up to its charming moniker, Solanum 'Baby's Tear' is a captivating houseplant native to the tropics of South Africa. Its foliage showcases a delightful palette of deep greens, further enhanced by tiny, tear-shaped leaves that grow densely from the stems of the plant – thus, earning its endearing name. This houseplant will typically reach around 6 inches in height and width, although it's not uncommon for the plant to expand further with proper care and time. In a terrarium or on a windowsill, the lush foliage will gradually develop into a thick carpet of greenery, giving off a mini jungle vibe. When placed in a hanging basket or a high shelf, the plant will trail down elegantly, creating a gorgeous “waterfall” effect of greenery. Though it's not a fast grower, patience will be rewarded with a beautiful and dense spread of leaves that breathe life into any space. Where the Solanum 'Baby's Tear' truly stands out is in its adaptability. It can thrive in a variety of conditions, from low light to bright indirect light, making it an ideal choice for beginners or those without a naturally green thumb. Its hardy nature also means it can tolerate occasional neglect, though it does appreciate regular watering and a humid environment to truly flourish. Beyond its stunning foliage, the Solanum 'Baby's Tear' also offers a delightful surprise in the form of delicate white flowers that bloom in the summer months. These tiny blossoms add an extra layer of beauty to the plant, transforming it from a simple houseplant into a miniature garden. Solanum 'Baby's Tear' is a testament to the beauty that lies in simplicity. With its delicate, tear-shaped leaves and easy-going nature, this plant is a lovely addition to any indoor plant collection, adding a touch of the tropics to your home, no matter the season.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
