Mimosa pudica = Awesome

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimosa_pudica

At the Science Barge there was this astounding sensitive plant to touch.  It was so fun to watch it change right in front of your eyes.

Nature is awesome.  I always did like high school biology, and it feels like a regression back to that child-like wonderment.

    Amazingly now this very sensitive plant can be grown indoors year round. In fact it’s now called the TickleMe Plant because it really MOVES fast when you Tickle It! The leaves instantly fold and even the branches droop when Tickled. Just search TickleMe Plant to easily grown your own in the TickleMe Plant Greenhouse!
