Biophytum sensitivum is an invasive plant endemic to India and Africa where it grows in wetlands under the shade of larger trees and shrubs. It is considered an annual plant and will eventually need to be replaced but it seeds prolifically so you will have an abundance of seedlings to plant. One amazing feature about these plants is that much like Mimosa pudica, they respond to touch and will close their leaves if handled. They also fold their leaves downwards at night and have a little sleep!

Pilea libanensis/glauca is a beautiful, creeping plant with red stems and blue-ish green leaves. It thrives in the humidity of a terrarium but be careful not to overwater it or it can start to decline.

Asparagus setaceus fern comes from South Africa and has soft, fine, fern-like leaves, even though it is not a fern at all. It thrives in a humid environment but much like the above plants, hates to sit in water. It is best to keep it out of sunlight as the harsh rays can burn the delicate leaves. I love the way it offers structure and texture to the terrarium and is one of my favorite plants.

Bun moss is another of my favorite plants, it is so easy to keep and stays beautifully lush and green in the terrarium with minimal care. Be sure to keep it moist; leaving it saturated is just as bad as letting it dry.
