These seeds are from Codariocalyx motorius, also known as the telegraph plant, dancing plant, or semaphore plant. This plant is capable of rapid movement like the venus flytrap. Yes, it moves fast enough so that you can see it move. The movement is not completely understood. You do not make this plant move by touching it, but instead it can be enticed into moving with music. For this reason some people think that the movement by this plant is used to keep away predators, maybe insects. Others think the plant moves to take in as much light energy as possible. At the base of each leaf, there are two small leaflets which constantly scan the environment and the main leaf turns itself smoothly on a hinge. The plant can get up to about 4 feet high and it has small purple flowers that look like little cups. The Power Of Movement In Plants was written by Charles Darwin in 1880 and this plant was included in the book. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11.

This is Coffea arabica Caturra, also known as a Dwarf Coffee. This plant is perfect for growing your own coffee indoors. Coffea arabica Caturra does not mind being in either shade or full sun and is much shorter than the normal coffee plant, making it a great selection as a house plant. I roast my own beans and almost all of the coffee I roast is arabica. I know that some people think robusta is better, but I like medium and light roasted coffees and that means arabica almost every time for me. This plant produces more coffee beans and matures quicker than common coffee plants. This is because the branches are shorter and closer together which directs more of the plants energy into producing coffee beans and growing to maturity. This variety is also more resistant to disease than the older arabica varieties. The white blossoms are scented and nicely fragrant. This plant is a larval host plant for the Half-blind sphinx Moth. It is also a nectar source for the Red-bordered Pixie, and Klugs Clearwing butterflies. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11.
