Biophytum sp. Ecuador II

This mini Biophytum from Ecuador only grows to 3-4″ tall.  The stem is a pale green, and new growth is a yellow-green.  It produces delicate looking leaves that are fairly elongated for its short size.  Like all Biophytums, it doesn’t like to dry out.  In nature many Biophytums grow alongside streams and in floodplanes, so they are generally very tolerant of seasonal flooding.  Many species can grow year around with their feet wet.
