Phyllanthus mirabilis, Phyllanthodendron mirabilis

Dragon Wings, Buddhas Prayer, Namaste Plant
Family: Phyllanthaceae
Origin: Thailand
USDA Plant Hardiness MapCaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageIrritatingSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Phyllanthus mirabilis is endemic to Thailand. It is the only Phyllanthus to be caudiciform. The leaves fold together at night. In habitat this plant grows in rich peat and gets a lot of water in the rain-season. At night the leaves fold together in pairs like butterfly wings. It will keep its leaves during the winter, but loose them in spring during dormancy period, leaving a thick showy caudex. Re-leafs around June. It is a nice bonsai plant that requires minimum care and tolerates wide range of conditions. You can grow it in full sun, or in a shade garden. It doesn't mind minimal watering, but will grow faster with daily watering.

If planted in the ground, the trunk can grow up to 2-3 ft in diameter, and reach a high of 20-25 ft.
