Morir-vivir depicts in Spanish the "life and death" cycle. The Mimosa Pudica plant (from Latin: pudica "shy, bashful or shrinking"; also called a sensitive, sleepy, or shame plant) is a creeping annual or perennial herb that is often grown for its curiosity value: the compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, defending themselves from harm, and re-open a few minutes later. The species is native to South America and Central America, but is now a pantropical weed. It can also be found in Asia in countries such as Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. It grows mostly in undisturbed shady areas, under trees or shrubs. It is also known for anti-venom properties.
