The Biophytum Sensitivum in preserving jar maintains its own ecosystem. This means that all nutrients, water and oxygen are constantly recycled. This way, the natural humidity of the living environment (ecosystem) of the plant is simulated. This plant takes care of itself completely. You can enjoy it for months, without having to put in any effort.
After receiving the plant ecosystem, it will require a few minutes of your time as it is a “Do It Yourself” (DIY) package. After planting your Biophytum Sensitivum, all you need to do is pick a good spot. Make sure you place the preserving jar in a light place, clear of direct sunlight. Because the plant maintains its own ecosystem, a little condensation will form on the inside of the preserving pot every day. If the amount of moisture becomes more and more over time, air the pot briefly. Finally, it is a good idea to turn the pot a little bit once in a while. This way you prevent all the leaves from growing in the same direction.
The Biophytum Sensitivum is an eye-catching tree with a tropical look. The plant is originally from tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia, and it’s also nicknamed ‘little tree plant’. With its wooden stem and the shape of its leaves, the plant in fact looks a lot like a little tree. What’s special about these leaves, is the fact that they fold up as you touch them.
Due to the ecosystem, watering is not necessary. Be sure not to open the jar after first closing it, in order not to disturb the ecosystem.
Place the plant in a light spot, but not in direct sunlight.
Room temperature (spot where the temperature is constant).
All plant ecosystems have been carefully tested by our plant grower. Practice shows that the average lifespan is about 3 to 6 months. The life span can also be much longer, provided the conditions are ideal. As plants are living organisms and we cannot predict how they respond to its conditions in your home, we cannot give any guarantees regarding the lifespan.
Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
