    Oh you shouldn't feel guilty at all! I was just joking around. Didn't intend to make you feel bad, you should be proud!

    Isn't that the plant that when something disturbs the leaves they retract?

    I don't know if it is the fastest, but it has to be ONE of the fastest. Mine is completely wilted in probably under a second after being touched. But they get really big too. Mine is growing out of the terrarium. AND people usually don't know this, (I didn't) they have thorns. And they hurt. Almost like Bois D' Arc.

    I tried to tell someone that on the forum a couple years ago and they tried to tell me I was wrong. Took two or three other people chiming in before they were convinced they were thorny beasties. Flowers are cute though, if you like little pink puffballs. They reminded me of tribbles from that Star Trek episode.
