Common Name: Sensitive Plant, Sleepy Plant, Action Plant, Dormilones, Touch-me-not, Shameplant, Shy Plant
Binomial name: Mimosa Pudica
Mimosa pudica (from Latin: pudica "shy, bashful or shrinking"; also called sensitive plant, sleepy plant, action plant, Dormilones, touch-me-not, shameplant, or shy plant) is a creeping annual or perennial flowering plant of the pea/legume family Fabaceae and Magnoliopsida taxon, often grown for its curiosity value: the compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, defending themselves from harm, and re-open a few minutes later. Perhaps this reflex was an adaption to prey and is a defense mechanism to scare prey away, or maybe it is an adaption to retain more water by shading itself to decrease water loss by heat of evaporation. Mimosa pudica has been and remains to be one of the most fascinating plants for rare plant enthusiasts. This plant is becoming increasingly more and more mainstream with companies marketing it towards children. Its unique ability to fold its leaves when touched or disturbed has been a topic of many debates.
