Biophytum Sensitivum, also known as the "Little Tree" or "Sensitive Plant," is a fascinating and unique plant that is becoming increasingly popular in the world of indoor plants. It is native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia and is a member of the Oxalidaceae family. Biophytum Sensitivum is a small, delicate plant that grows up to 6 inches in height and has small, green leaves with tiny, bead-like leaves that can move when touched.

One of the most distinctive features of the Biophytum Sensitivum is its ability to respond to touch and movement. When touched, the plant's leaves fold up and droop downward, giving the appearance of a wilted plant. This is a defence mechanism that protects the plant from predators and helps it conserve water during periods of drought. The leaves will return to their normal position after a few minutes once they realize that the threat has passed. This unique characteristic makes it an interesting and interactive plant for people of all ages.

Biophytum Sensitivum is a relatively easy plant to care for, making it an excellent choice for beginners or anyone who wants a low-maintenance indoor plant. It prefers bright, indirect sunlight and well-draining soil that is kept moist but not waterlogged. It can also thrive in higher humidity environments, making it an ideal plant for the bathroom or kitchen. Biophytum Sensitivum can also be propagated easily by dividing the plant at the root.
