A non-carnivorous but fast-moving tropical plant! Biophytum sensitivum is also called the Little Tree Plant because it resembles a small palm tree, and has multiple medicinal uses in Eastern medicine. But what makes it really near is the fact that the leaves fold shut when stimulated. Unike the more common Mimosa pudica, which folds its leaves upward, these plants fold their leaves downwards when touched. They are a wonderful addition to grow with your Nepenthes and other carnivorous plants in a terrarium, in a terrarium with small frogs or insects, in a pot surrounding the base of a Nepenthes, or as a stand-alone plant in a pot as well! Neat, and very inexpensive. Potted in 3-inch pots and ready to grow for you.
