This Seemingly Normal Plant Starts Swinging Back-And-Forth Anytime Someone Approaches

The concept of plant movement was recorded in Charles Darwin's final book on plants called "Power of Movement In Plants." Darwin devised an experiment where he picked a glass needle and a plant shoot, he glued them together, and he would then record and mark how the plant grew. In his conclusion, he found that the stems, leaves, branches and roots of many plants work together to move the entire plant. Over long periods of time, they move in a circle that he called "circumnutation." We can see such habits in vine plants. The movement is already in the genetics of the plant. Watch this plant take on rapid movement. Darwin would be excited about it, and so will you.
