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. 🌿

    This plant also was local to Phureua District of Loei Province in Thailand. When I was young I came across this plant.

    in D.R. they're called "Mori`-vivi`" something akin to "resurrectors" due to how the closing of the leaves' systems somehow resembles passing... at least til a few hours later!

    Those are randomly anywhere in Puerto Rico. As a child, I couldn’t pass them without touching them. We call them “MoriVivi” which is a made up word joining two words which translates to DiedLived.
