Hi,
Has anyone ever grown a telegraph plant before? Is it easy? What can you tell me about it? I want to get this plant but I dont know if I could grow it because I dont know if its easy to grow. Lots of sources say its easy but I just want to check with people here.

Sorry. Can you give a botanical name? I just don't know what a telegraph plant is.

Desmodium motorium, syn. Desmodium gyrans, Codariocalyx motorius

i couldn't find any actual info on caring for the plant...just got the botanical name and some weird article about some guy who had one for a long time.

sounds really interesting tho - the way the leaves vibrate with changes in atmosphere and/or noise.
