Telegraph Plant/Dancing Plant (Desmodium gyrans) young seedling start forming leaflets! 這階段的跳舞草小苗已經長出會動的小葉!

Finally a plant can be like a pet to interact with!  It is one of two plants move the most so far as known, the other one is sensitive plant (Mimosa pudica).  Easy to grow!   Telegraph plant is a very interesting plant, it is a pea family tropical shrub.  “The small lateral leaflets will rotate on their axis, moving in jerky motions under the slightest influence of touch, sunshine, warmth or small vibrations. At night they droop downwards. " — quote from: http://www.seedaholic.com/desmodium-gyrans-telegraph-plant.html    All this it can do to make it a “pet plant"!   I guess it is great house plant to have, look at it moves when you listen to music or enjoy the warm partial shade sunlight shines through windows…

Telegraph plant is best to be grown in partial shade, warm and moist location.  Mature size: 2′-4′(H) /(W).  USDA Zones:10-11. Pink pea flowers in late fall / early winter.  Propagate from seeds or cuttings.

豆科舞草屬的灌木,原生亞洲各國.  喜溫暖濕潤但排水良好的環境.  喜半日照或散光,容易栽種作為室內植物或戶外種植但冬天需防寒害. 秋冬開粉紅色豆科花朵.  以種子或扦插來繁殖. 成熟株高及寬幅2-4呎.  植株的小葉對於觸摸,光線,溫度或聲音有明顯的反應動作. 很適合給小朋友種植或當作"寵物植物"來養.
