This is a time lapse I just made that focuses on my young Sensitive Plant seedlings. Other names for the plant include Mimosa pudica, touch-me-not, & humble plant. My friends and I usually use Sleepy Mimosa. The leaves of the plant fold in when disturbed, as well as at night.


I wanted to make a video that included shots of the plant closing up & opening back up again. The sun through the trees played some wonderful games with the light during the video. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.


This is part of my Time Lapse Set as well as my Plants & Such Set
