The forgotten creeper that is now usually an unwanted weed. I found this on the roadside near my home growing wild. It is called mimosa pudica (shy grass). It’s roots extracts can be use to neutralise the lethality of the venom of the Cobra. It has many common names – eg. Sleeping grass, Shy grass, Touch me not, Humble plant, Shameful plant & many other nick names. The origin of this species is said to be from South and Central America.
