Biophytum sensitivum has cream, yellow or pink colour flowers that will come intermittently throughout the year. It is an annual plant, and in the wild they would not last longer than a year but in a terrarium, they can last longer especially if you remove the flowers early when you see them. The plant is most likely to die suddenly just after releasing their seeds. It is possible to harvest the seeds and germinate them.
