2minute tour is a group adventure in video blogging.

The idea is simple: Take us on a short video tour of anything you care to share. Show us around your home; introduce us to your neighbours; invite us for a drink at your favourite spot; take us on holiday with you. There are no limitations.

Use the video function on your phone or camera; record with your webcam. You can even use a video-cam if you really want to be hip. Just hit the RECORD button...

"It's amazing, the leaves collapse, and then the branch sort of collapses the stem."

"Is it a defense sort of thing?"

"Uh-huh. And it'll gradually unfold after a bit. It's amazing to think it's a plant that reacts like an animal. How did it evolve? In singhalese it's call methikumba, which means sleepy head."

This is an old(ish) 2min tour i did with my mum before this group existed. The top video shows the action of the folding petals better than the explanation vid - so thought i better include it.

one of my favourite plants. It's mimosa pudica, the shy, bashful or sensitive plant.

What's amazing too is just how much you sound like your Mum.
