Mimosa pudica (the shy plant)

This is an interesting plant we have found in here in HK. It is very sensitive and it receives anything but exactly what is needed it retracts. For example if you touch it's leaf it curls up until it feels safe again or a night the entire plant curls up and waits for the morning light. As the newest member of our home we will need to work to make it feel more comfortable. Our first day together was spent curled up due to the shock of the new place and then night fall but Sunday brings new life to our plant again.
