Decided to post this thread here to see what kind of success others have had with the moving plants that are out there. Currently I have Mimosa pudica, and Desmodium gyrans, both doing very well, and they clearly move fast enough to see as we all know.
On the Desmodium, you can clearly see the leaflets at the base of the main leaves, which move every time I even bump the greenhouse wall or even just walk past them.
I've heard some people have had troubles growing one or both of these plants, so if you have succeeded, what techniques are you using? The Mimosa grows in a large pot along with a couple Aristolochias, and the Desmodium both in a small pot, all in regular potting soil, and kept damp to very moist. They grow in my mini greenhouse at around 75-90 F, and under 4 foot T8 shoplights.
