The Plant Brains!

It was a normal science class that day, in the last week. We were learning about control and coordination in plants. And that’s when I learnt why touch me not( Mimosa Pudica) plant closes its leaves. It was a great class, although it left me with thousands of more questions. To answer some of these questions, I had to look further than the textbook.
