Biophytum sensitivum


Biophytum sensitivum, also known as little tree plant, is a delightful tiny plant that looks just like a palm-tree.

It thrives in shade, humidity and heat and will tend to die after a year or so, but it will produce many little new seedlings from flowers on long stems that come out of the top regularly. It will drop these seeds into another pot of damp compost next to the plant, or in the base compost in a terrarium.

 a species of plant in the genus Biophytum of the family Oxalidaceae. It is commonly found in wet lands of Nepal, tropical India and in other Southeast Asian countries and is used for medicinal purposes in Nepal and India.  The leaflets of Biophytum sensitivum are able to move rapidly in response to mechanical stimulation such as touch.
