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 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 floodplains, so they are generally very tolerant of seasonal flooding.  Many species can grow year-round with their feet wet.
