The shame plant is one of the interesting plants. Its green is attractive to our eyes. They look very green in the rainy season.
I was just going to my uncle’s home, and my eyes detected one different type of weed next to the path. I went to it.  I was already knowledgeable about it and I immediately identified it.
And what touching and shying game started? I was very excited to tell others so I captured the above video.

This kind of plant is most common in near jungle cultivated farming land. Many people plant them into the flower pot. Its seeds are now available online for urban citizens. They can plant it in their own homes.

What is a touch-me-not plant?

The touch-me-not plant, also known as the sensitive plant or the shy plant, is a species of flowering plant native to tropical regions of South and Central America. It is known for its sensitive leaves, which fold up and droop when touched or shaken and then slowly open again a few minutes later.

The touch-me-not plant is a herbaceous annual that grows to a height of about 2-3 feet. It has delicate, fern-like leaves that are green in color and turns pink or red when exposed to bright light. The plant also produces small, pink, or purple flowers that bloom in the summer.

The touch-me-not plant is often grown as a houseplant or in gardens for its ornamental value. It is relatively easy to care for and does well in well-draining soil in a sunny location. However, it is sensitive to cold temperatures and should be protected from frost.

In addition to its decorative value, the touch-me-not plant has also been used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including skin irritation, rashes, and insect bites. It is also believed to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
