Dear Sir :
I’m a plant lover and trying to find seeds from this little plant from India ( Mukkutti or Biophytum sensitivum), maybe you can help me with my search. I understand, that there is two varieties of this plant (Yellow and White). I found your e-mail on this blogger.


Let me know how much it will be, and I will send you the money thru Western Union.
Thank you very much.
