    Unhappy

    I've got some Desmodium seedlings, and they don't seem to respond to touch like my mimosa plants. Does anyone know what the deal is with these plants? Aren't they supposed to exhibit rapid movement?

    Thanks,
    Nile

    Actually, they don't seem responsive to touch...maybe more light sensitive. When they're getting direct sunlight, some of the smaller leaves move up and down like slowly moving butterfly wings, and others move in a circular motion.
