Demonstration of the touch sensitive plants reactions to being touched, bumped, hit, and heated with fire as well as some fantastic time lapse videography of the plant standing back up.

I grew this for my children when they were young. It was in the middle of our dining table and we had it for 2 years.We named it MARTHA! Not only would it move if it was gently blowed on, it actually would close up in the evening at about 7 pm every night and open again by the morning.When talking with my kids about fire safety, my children said they would only take the living pets outside, namely our 2 dogs, and my 4 year old yelled, "well, I'd take Martha, because she is alive and one of our family." I'd forgotton about that little story until I saw your post. Thankyou!!!

What if it can actually feel pain that we have yet to discover? What if most plants can? The horror!
