Which Plant Can Move From Place To Place?
We know plants have life and need air, water and soil to live. But plants normally cannot move like animals, and stay rooted to the spot where they grow. But an unusual plant which lives iii parts of the American- West and the Near East, can actually move from place to place in search of water.
This is a desert plant and is known as resurrection plant. whenever there is enough water around, it grows just like any other plant, with green fern like leaves. But when water is not available, it pulls up its roots and dries up. But it does not die. It just becomes a ball of brown twigs and looks like dead. This lightweight ball is carried along the ground with the wind and can live roaming like this for many years, until it finds water. Then it stops roaming and sinks its roots into the wet ground and starts growing again.
