SEEDS: The Dancing Plant (Telegraph Plant)
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)
