This poetic plant closes her leaves in the evening and expands them in the morning and daytime. Low maintance and partial shade, the room she has AC but when it’s off it can get warmer and slightly humid. She’s been surviving either climate.💓

Very unique caudex plant. Leaves fold at night to conserve energy.
