Horticulture is God's gift to me. It is my escape from the things that would otherwise take a toll on life. It has taught me so many lessons.

I just saw a clip with this plant on Twitter and remember that I have a photo to share. It is very sensitive to the touch and that is why we call it ‘DeadandWakeMacka’here in Jamaica.

I've heard that this plant is an invasive weed in parts of Asia, and I'm trying to grow it in a pot and it's hardly surviving! 😃
