Biophytum Sensitivum Peru ecotype | (Actual Plant You'll Receive!) 

Discover the fascinating Biophytum Sensitivum Peru ecotype, a jewel from the Peruvian Amazon that will transport you to Jurassic times! This annual herbaceous plant, highly sought after by collectors, reaches heights of 10 to 40 cm and captivates with its unique charm.

Its thin, pinnate leaves, with up to 20 intensely green leaflets, immerse you in the lushness of the Amazonian nature. Experience its spectacular umbel inflorescence adorned with delicate white flowers that bring a touch of purity to your space.

Did you know its name honors the sensitivity of its leaves? Just like the famous Mimosa pudica, they respond to touch and changes in light with a downward movement, a natural spectacle that will leave you amazed.

Ideal for indoors, near a window, or in terrariums and greenhouses, this plant thrives best with bright light but without direct sun exposure. And that's not all! Its upkeep is straightforward: moderate watering to keep the substrate slightly moist, avoiding waterlogging, and an ambient humidity between 60% and 80%.

With a temperature range between 14 and 27 ºC, the Biophytum Sensitivum Peru ecotype easily adapts to your home. It requires loose substrate rich in organic matter to showcase its full splendor, and surprise! It's also used for medicinal purposes in Nepal and India.

Want to witness magic in motion? Watch how it responds to light: as night falls, all its leaves lean, creating a spectacle worth admiring.

Get ready to incorporate this botanical wonder into your life, turning your space into a green paradise. Make it a part of your collection and enjoy natural beauty at home!
