Also known as little tree plant, Biophytum sensitivum is a small palm-like plant. It looks just like a miniature palm tree! Biophytum sensitivum is part of the Oxalis family, which means its leaflets fold downward at night or when the plant is stressed. The leaves also fold downward in response to touch, making it quite the sensitive little plant! Pink flowers appear in late summer. 

Native to the tropical wetland regions of Nepal and India, this plant adds a colorful and fun element to mixed containers, terrariums, and windowsills.

Biophytum sensitivum loves moisture and humidity, which makes it a great choice for terrariums and containers with other moisture-loving plants. Be sure to keep it consistently wet and consider using a pebble tray to increase moisture. Medium to bright light will be just enough. Do not expose the delicate leaves to direct sunlight.
