Biophytum Sensitivum is also known as the 'mini palm tree plant' for obvious reasons. It is naturally grows in wetlands and riparian areas of Asia, and hence likes lots of moisture and humidity. 

The leaves of this plant fold downwards in response to light and touch (although, the touch response will only occur once a plant is happy and acclimated, and even then, it's slow and subtle). This plant likes bright indirect light and warm, humid conditions. These conditions coupled with its small size make it an ideal terrarium plant. 

We've found these plants are not fussed about the medium they're growing in. They do extremely well in sphagnum moss, but will also thrive in hydroponic mediums (their very fine roots will even happily grow in leca). Mature Biophytum Sensitivum plants will literally shoot their seeds around their environment, so we find regularly find them growing in pots alongside other plants - even in our very coarse anthurium mix. 

The plant you see pictured here is a representation of the plant you will receive, and it will be sent in its pot. A pen is included in selected photos to give you an indication of scale and plant size.

We only ship plants on Mondays. Please order before 2pm on Sunday to ensure your plant will be sent the following Monday. Orders placed after this time MIGHT not be shipped untill the following week.

We only ship plants to non-quarantine states (sorry sorry WA, TAS and NT residents). Shipping of plants is capped at $18.00 per order. This includes the packing materials and labour times. We use recycled packing where possible to reduce our waste and keep cost down, but we ensure that all packing material is sturdy enough to resist damage during transit.

If no one is home to receive your order, the parcel will be left in a safe place. We will not request signature on delivery, as parcels sent back to the post office may not get picked up for days, therefore increasing the amount of stress placed on the plant(s) inside.

This plant can also be picked up from the Northern Wellbeing Centre; 113C miller st, Epping VIC. If you select this option at check-out, we will email you to organise a pick-up time.

Very happy

Very quick delivery, plant arrived extremely well packaged. The plant itself is beautiful, leaves fold up and down at different parts of the day - after a few weeks of replanting now also has a flower. Very happy with my purchase would order again :))

Amazing plants

I have bought exotic plants elsewhere in the past, but what distinguishes Green My Space from other sellers is the personalised attention provided to me when answering those questions concerning tips and suggestions for plant health and longevity. Julia even had the time to explain to me photosynthesis! Who knew plants capture energy in light and use it to fix carbon dioxide into glucose and that water and oxygen is released, contrary to what other people may tell you! If you want a beautiful Photoautotroph (a plant that uses light to self-feed ... who knew! Thanks Julia), then Green My Space is the place to buy. You may even learn something along the way.
