This plant is something very special: it has a day-night rhythm. During the day, the feathered leaf fronds are unfolded and after dawn, the whole is folded. It looks like a loose folded umbrella.
It's a great way to show kids that even plants "sleep".
The plant also responds to too much light or very strong touch.
However, it is not a palm in the botanical sense - it is one of the clover plants and is therefore very easy to care for.
