Biophytum Sensitivum, also known as the "sensitive plant" or "touch-me-not," is a unique plant that is known for its ability to react to touch and temperature changes. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Biophytum Sensitivum healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Biophytum Sensitivum prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low light, but it may not grow as quickly or produce as many leaves.

  2. Water: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Do not let the soil completely dry out between watering, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

  3. Temperature: Biophytum Sensitivum prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). It is important to keep the plant away from drafts and cold windows.

  4. Humidity: Biophytum Sensitivum prefers high humidity. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier near the plant or by placing a tray of water near the plant. You can also mist the leaves regularly to help increase humidity.

  5. Soil: Biophytum Sensitivum prefers a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil to create a soil mix that is well-draining and nutrient-rich.

  6. Fertilizer: Biophytum Sensitivum does not require frequent fertilization. You can feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season.

  7. Propagation: Biophytum Sensitivum can be propagated by taking stem cuttings and rooting them in water or moist soil.

  8. Pruning: You can prune the plant to control its size and shape or to remove any damaged or yellowing leaves.

  9. Touch: Biophytum Sensitivum is known for its sensitivity to touch. Its leaves will close and fold in response to touch or other stimuli. It is important to be gentle with the plant and avoid touching it too much.

Following these care tips will help your Biophytum Sensitivum thrive and stay healthy. With proper care, this unique and fascinating plant can be a fun addition to any indoor garden.
