BBRAeNEWS No.256 - Invasion of the Touch-Me-Not.
The Invasion of the Touch-Me-Not.
More commonly also known as the humble plant or sensitive plant, it is scientifically called Minosa pudica.
The Smaller field, in front of Bungor and Bidara Precincts, next to the Large Football field, there is a silent but gradual large scale invasion of the touch-me-not plants. The compounds leaves of these plants fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, and re-opened within minutes. It is sparsely to densely prickly. It may be a beautiful weed plant but hazardous to human especially children due to its prickly thorns.
Smaller parts of the Big Football field are also been invaded, though not noticeably widespread.
