Description

Herb-stir-me-not (Mimosa pudica) or sensitive mimosa belongs to the legume family (Leguminosae).
It is a herbaceous plant that shows that plants are not only alive, but can also react very quickly even though they do not have a nervous system. This is done with the help of signal substances. When touched by the even-pinnate compound leaf or by the wind, the 1 cm long leaves “close” (fold together). This phenomenon only occurs at air temperatures above 18 °C. The petiole on which the leaves are located also tilts towards the trunk. Not the whole plant reacts but only the part that is touched. After a few minutes, the petioles stretch again and the leaves unfold again.
At night, the leaves are also folded together. That’s why it’s also known as sleep mode.
