Sensitive Plant

My kids want to build a fairy garden this spring, so I took them to browse our local nursery to see what materials they had and to get some ideas. We came across an amazing plant that I’ve never heard of before called the sensitive plant. The plant has a very neat protective trick! If it is touched or shaken, its leaves fold and then slowly unfold a few minutes later. My kids loved gently touching the leaves and watching them fold up. We’ll definitely be coming back in the spring to scoop up some of these plants!
