What is the plant
Biophytum sensitivum is a gorgeous little miniature palm-like plant species that’s perfect for small containers and those looking to create a tropical jungle feel. Native to wetland areas of India and Southeast Asia, it’s commonly found in riparian areas near streams and waterfalls, and so you can expect this moisture loving plant to thrive under terrarium conditions.With delicate branches radiating out from a central crown and a single woody stem, it’s truly like a little palm tree. The name “sensitivum” comes from the way that the leaves fold downwards in response to touch and at night for protection. Truly, a lovely little feature plant for a terrarium!
