You receive a set with 2 different rarities of the plant world, namely 2 plants that move.
1. Mimosa pudica - The "Don''t Touch Me" - Mimosa
If you touch the leaves of this mimosa, it immediately folds up all of its foliage. To predators, it immediately looks like old, dried-up, unlucky green stuff and is not eaten.
After about half an hour, the plant has built up the correct cell pressure and is back to normal.
Pot size: 9cm
Home: American tropics
Location: Partially shaded in the room
Watering: little - but the roots always a little damp.
Specialty:This mimosa has pink-lilac-colored flower balls that look like small, colorful dandelions
2. Biophytum sensitivum - South Sea palm
This plant is something very special: it has a day-night rhythm. During the day the feathery leaf fronds are unfolded and after dusk has come, the whole thing is folded up. It then looks like a loosely folded umbrella.
This is a wonderful way to show children that plants "sleep" too.
The plant also reacts to too much light or very strong contact.
However, it is not a palm in the botanical sense - it belongs to the clover family and is therefore very unproblematicunproblematic in care.
