The Shy Plant has delicate feathery fronds that fold inward when touched. The leaflets reopen in about half an hour and fold naturally each night.
Note: the opening and closing weakens the plant if it occurs too often.
Position in a bright spot and maintain moist soil conditions at all times – reduce watering in winter. Can sit in water during the growing period. Feed fortnightly in spring/summer and mist regularly.
