We know this as the Sensitive plant or the Tickle-Me plant because those fern like leaves close almost instantly when touched and then re-open a few minutes later.

So unusual beautiful is it a climber

12 Aug, 2009

 

Not a climber Morgana, but it grows vert straggly, and looks better if its tied to a cane....

Wonder why the leaves close up. Does it do this if it rains? Or is it a relative of the fly catcher plants that closes it's flowers.

12 Aug, 2009

 

No Lindak it closes them as sort of protection I think.....
