 The Dancing Plant is also known as the Telegraph Plant

  • This peculiar shrub - botanically known as Codariocalyx Motorius - is native to Asia, and has sparked the interests of botanists and others alike
  • The leaflets move in set elliptical patterns to help deduce the position of the sun to appropriately expend energy, moving the larger leaves where fitting
  • The most intriguing thing about this plant is that it moves when stimulated by sound. Touching the plants will not cause them to move, as the Sensitive Plant does
  • When exposed to sound, particularly high pitch (high frequency) sound waves, the plant’s leaflets and leaves move in a peculiar fashion
  • The leaves move dramatically enough, and quick enough, to be reasonably observed by the human eye (time lapse photography or videos can show its movements even more so)

      The Dancing Seeds.

      I recieved my package with full instructions. A neat air tight bag with the 5 seedlings I ordered. I verified that it's authentic and I checked each seed through a magnifying glass to see the quality. Yet , feeling a little unsure I planted them according to the instructions and I can see them germinating already. They provided me with extra soil that is specific for these seedlings, whereby I could plant my Pitch seeds and dancing plant seedlings in their own pot plants. (: I'm highly impressed to such an extend that I so badly want to shorten my budget for the month and order one more product....
