Plant Species: Biophytum sensitivum  

 

Plant Genus: Biophytum  

 

Plant Family: Oxalidaceae  

 

Native Plant: Kerala, wet areas of Nepal and tropical India  

 

Soil Drainage: With high water retention, we recommend a substrate mix composed of organic matter, perlite, vermiculite, and sphagnum moss.  

 

!Attention: It is recommended to keep the substrate consistently moist but not excessively wet to avoid root necrosis.  

 

Soil pH: Acidic  

 

Fertilizers: Does not require constant fertilization considering the substrate contains organic matter. Fertilizer should be diluted to avoid root burn.  

 

Air Humidity: For proper plant development, a high level of air humidity ranging from 60% to 80% is necessary. Green Mirrors recommends optimal conditions initially while the plant is juvenile to promote acclimatization and development. It can be placed in a display case or under a glass dome. Once the plant exceeds 30 cm and matures, it can acclimate to a humidity of at least 60%.  

 

Temperature: 18-27 degrees Celsius
