Touch-me-not plant

.
The touch-me-not plant is also known as Sensitive Plant. Around the globe, it has developed many nicknames because of its striking shy attributes like the sleepy plant, shy plant, shrinking plant or bashful plant in other parts of the world.

Mimosa Pudica is its botanical name. These plants are native to South and Central America but are now found around the world because of their fascinating response to human touch. The plant grows in shady areas like under trees.
The plant grows in shady areas like under trees.

The touch-me-not plant is not really shy or bashful. The leaves of this plant when touched fold or shrink inwards as a “rapid plant movement” to protect itself from harmful elements in the environment like grazing animals. However, after a few minutes, the leaves open again. The stems of this plant are prickly and the leaves are fern-like, with a ball-shaped pink colored flower.
