Mimosa pudica has amazing abilities

Leaves that close whenever we touch them and as soon as the night falls. This is the complex and amazing defense mechanism of the sensitive plant. 🌿

    In Vietnam, it's called "shy plant", because its reaction is similar to a girl blushing when someone touches her. It is a common weed here, so touching and watching these plants is like a game for students :)))

    It is a defence system which happens due to sudden water movement out of the cell making the cell to contract and all the cells contracting in sync will give this result. Responsiveness to stimulus
