Its a weed in the university greenhouses, but there are a few potted specimen plants. What we grow is also not overly sensitive to touch, but it does respond to light levels.

Do any of you Oxaliphiles grow Biophytum?  I have had B. sensitivum for a
year now and I really love it.  It's a bit of a weed, but it's so unique
and easy.  I have two growing on my kitchen sink now.  They look like
little palm trees.  I really didn't expect them to thrive outside of my
terrarium, but they're doing great.

I'm a little dubious about them being B. sensitivum, though, as they are
remarkably NOT very sensitive.
