The dancing plant

by:Y&M Crafts     2019-08-23
Dr.
Pradit Kampermpool runs through his nursery, through rows and rows of exotic orchids, and before stopping, his chest proudly sits in front of an inconspicuous, overgrown weedlooking plant.
He said seriously that the factory cost him a lot of money.
He said he has developed complex breeding programs and has been following it religiously for nearly 10 years to produce it.
The plant is a dance plant, he said.
\"It\'s a dancing plant!
He paused for the effect.
At the same time, the sun rises from the green fields.
Kampermpool\'s dancing plant spires of small leaves nod and bounce in the breeze.
A bird issued a warning somewhere.
Kampermpool is still waiting.
\"This plant is a dance plant,\" he stressed again, \"it is a dance plant.
Kampermpool is about 5 and a half feet tall.
He strode through the nursery and occasionally disappeared behind the screen of the orchid stem, on the other side a few seconds later, his green --and-white polka-
In the swaying Bush, the polka dot shirt flashes between the gaps.
Nearly 6: 30 this morning, we are standing in the nursery of Kampermpool, Udon Thani province, northern Thailand.
The humble town, already hot and humid, sits about 35 miles south of the border with Laos, surrounded by rice fields and dense jungles.
About a mile south of the nursery is downtown uronsani, where there are brightly lit KFC chains, pizza shops and movie theaters.
Another mile south, a small and crowded station connects the town to Bangkok.
Elephant administrator in the evening-
Crooked, small hut without teeth-
Park the elephant under the shop awning in the center of the city to escape the rain at night.
But in his nursery this morning, less than 7, the sun is still low, and the 65-year-old Kampermpool has been up for hours, singing softly to his dance plants.
He is proud to say that it responds to music.
\"This is the third generation, my friend,\" Kampermpool continued . \" He pointed to the dancing plant again.
It\'s a locust gyrans.
This is the third generation, the third intersection of the good, the good self.
My friend, third, third generation.
\"The Dancing plants grow unrestricted in a secluded enclosure behind the Kampermpool nursery, bursting from brick slots filled with dark wet soil.
The black net is hung on the fold above the head to block the harmful light of the sun, and the barbed wire prevents thieves from breaking into the fence at night and stealing precious samples from the factory.
The rude workers kicked casually on the mud in the field;
A bunch of barbed wire is baked in the sun.
For those who are not trained, Kampermpool\'s nursery looks more like a gulag.
Kampermpool doesn\'t care.
He only cares about dancing plants.
If there is a fire in the orchid tomorrow, jump steadily from the trough to the trough, and slowly and relentlessly through the nursery, Dr.
There is only one thing that comes to mind at Pradit Kampermpool: plants.
He will selflessly run in the thick smoke, give an alarm, build a fire passage with orchids, cut off his dance plants urgently, and store it in a wet and safe mouth, do something! . . . anything! . . .
Just to save it. . . save The Plant!
Sharing this observation with Kampermpool, he will see it as an implicit threat, carefully stepping back, squinting, and then asking, \"what fire is tomorrow, what do you mean? he said excitedly. He\'s sulking.
The sun climbed higher.
The fields are warming up.
His dancing plants are sharp little leaves-
Gyrans, a locust in his mountain--
Nod and bounce in the breeze.
The bird issued another warning. He shrugs.
\"I have been on this plant for seven years,\" he explained shyly . \".
The plant twitched.
Before Kampermpool starts breeding the plant, he must first find it.
Asked him where it came from, he quickly became shy, and at the same time poked a short and thick thumb on the green hills on his shoulder, vaguely pointing to the other side of the road, he nodded to Laos in the north and kept whispering to himself.
When he was a young man, Kampermpool said carefully, considering every word and making sure nothing was leaked, the elders of the mountain tribes scattered in the North talked about a dancing plant.
He said they made tea with dance plants from mountains, jungle villages and border towns. It was 1976.
Kampermpool began to look for the plant.
\"I hired someone to check it out for me,\" he said . \"
\"I found one in Yunnan, China, but the leaves are bigger;
They have some near beibifu near Myanmar, but no one is paying attention ---
Looks like weed.
\"It does look like a weed.
A few small branches from the Kampermpool factory don\'t look completely inappropriate on the salad.
It will also not attract attention between the two paving boards.
If a trusted friend tells you it\'s bok choy, you won\'t question it.
In the end, Kampermpool said, his hired workers found a dance species that grew deep in the jungle.
Kampermpool transferred his weight to his football, leaning forward and whispering from behind his hand.
\"Shhahhh,\" he said . \"
He was no longer standing in his nursery, and the early morning sun shone out of the clouds.
Pradit Kampermpool is back in the jungle.
\"So I was looking,\" he whispered, separating the leaves of imagination, squinting at the years, passing through rows of orchids and barbed wire, to an imaginary open space. \"Hmmm. . .
He said softly.
\"Well, the leaves are similar.
He paused for the effect.
\"Then it moved a little!
\"He shouted, throwing his arms into the air, jumping back. It was 1991.
The job of finding dance plants is over.
It took 15 years.
Kampermpool said: \"The plant has almost disappeared from the world, so I dug it out.
This is a simple statement.
Kampermpool doesn\'t mean it literally, but that\'s what he does. He dug it up.
He went deep into the jungle with a shovel, dug up the plants, shook the soil from the roots, brought it back here, carefully planted it in a trough full of darkness, it is located in the damp soil in the shade of his nursery.
It has remained there since then, and its roots probe the rich covering on the regular shovels of Kampermpool and Pat gently.
Finally, a complex breeding program, 24-Cultivation of hours--
Watering, fertilizing, measuring, sampling, pruning--
Cross-breeding, biopsy, singing, coaxing, watching, and continuous monitoring can all begin.
He bred the plant first and then again. -
Second generation, my friend. -
Later, he crossed it with a pig in China, creating a hybrid variety.
Slowly, this plant has become this plant over the years. ------------On Oct.
1873, Charles Darwin wrote to Sir Joseph hook, \"Now I want to tell you, for my own benefit, about the movement of [mountain modium]gyrans]. . .
Little Flyers never sleep, which is strange to me;
They play their games from 11: 00 in the evening, maybe later.
Darwin is the author of \"Origin of Species\" published in 1859.
Hook is his friend and confidant, the head of the Royal Botanic Garden, which collects thousands of plants from all over the world.
In June 10, 1850, Hook collected a specimen from the northeastern Indian state of Sikkim, which is located at the foothills of the Himalayas, a few miles from Nepal in the West and a few miles from Bhutan in the east. China extends to the north;
In June 30, 1850, he took another sample from Khasia, Meghalaya, southeast of Sikkim.
Hook sent the specimen back to Chiyou.
Darwin began to learn the locust gyrans--
That\'s what he calls sometimes ---
After borrowing a specimen of Hook, its small flyer began to move as early as 1855.
In thanking hook for his loan, Darwin wrote: \"I do hope that it is not very precious because, as I told you, it may have been for the stupidest purpose.
I read somewhere that none of the plants shut the leaves so quickly in the dark, and I wanted to cover them up for half an hour a day to see if I could teach it to shut it down on its own.
More than 20 years later, Darwin was still working hard.
If the pointy little leaves of the specimen he borrowed make the sound of ochched like campermpur, Darwin never noticed, or if he noticed, he never mentioned it.
If he sang to his sample like Kampermpool, close to it, whisper in a whisper on its thick leaves, whisper softly, gently whe, coaxing it, coaxing
On July 24, 1878, he wrote to German researcher Fritz Mueller, \"I am working as hard as I can to deal with the various plant movements,\" \"I am trying to simplify them to some simple rules, but I don\'t know if I will succeed.
Darwin did succeed.
Two years later, a book
Published a long monograph entitled the motor power of plants.
This is the last book published in Darwin\'s lifetime, representing more than 20 years of research on mobile plant species.
During that time, he conducted an experiment round after round, measuring the movement of the leaves under all conditions, depriving the plant of light and nutrition, and gathering water on the leaves to simulate rainfall, place them at extreme temperatures and take the slices out of the plant.
When Darwin poured water on the leaves, his specimen of the desgygyrans moved.
When the water fell on its pointed little flyer, it made the plants twitch, and Darwin measured the movement.
He wrote to Mueller again on April 1881 and concluded that the movements were meant to \"shoot water drops \".
\"If you are in a heavy rain,\" he continued, \"I would appreciate it if you could remember the concept in your mind and pay attention to the location of these leaves.
Nevertheless, Darwin did not fully understand the plant.
Long before it became a plant. -
More than a century ago, it was found in the jungle and transported to Kampermpool nursery in ulonsani-
Desmodium gyrans\'s control of Darwin is almost as strong as its current control of Kampermpool.
On April 16, 1881, a year after the publication of the power of movement of plants, Darwin sent a note to his friend Lord everbury.
The first line reads, \"Would you be kind enough to send me the holder of this note and lend it to me desgygyrans?
\"He asked for a sample again;
However, Darwin has never completed a study of the desgygyrans.
A year later, he died in April 19, 1882.
He was buried next to Sir Isaac Newton, under a slab of stone in the north aisle of Westminster Abbey, and any theory he secretly hid about the plant was buried by him.
Kampermpool will be eager to tell you that the plants that Darwin studied more than a century ago are very different from the specimens grown in Udon Thani nursery.
\"It\'s a dancing plant!
He will stick to it.
\"This plant is a dancing plant!
Kampermpool will be proud to say that this is different. It dances.
There is no doubt that Darwin\'s plants have moved, and Darwin believes that after a heavy rainfall, these moves have shaken the drops of water on the leaves.
But the factory in campermpur-The Plant --
Response to music-to music! --
Kampermpool has been actively encouraging this behavior for more than a decade, selectively breeding and crossing young plants that respond most warmly to his songs.
Darwin called the plant Red Rock;
Modern botanists call it either the locust gyrans or, more precisely these days, the motor nerves of Codariocalyx;
Its common name is The Telegraph factory or the signal factory--
After the leaves move, similar to signal lights. Kampermpool --
Who buried his face in the leaves of his plants, disappeared almost to his ears, and whispered softly to it ---
The Sun that told his plant Miss udon to dance.
In fact, since Maarten Houttuyn, a Dutch doctor and naturalist, first described it ---
Who named it a Flower Stick in 1779--
This plant is called ginger flower at different times (1781)
Gyrans, Locust (1825)
, Locust roylei (1834)
Gyrans (1842)
Gyrans, fake arthritis (1844)
, Meibomia gyrans (1891)
And dancing grass (1938).
Gwilym Lewis, Kew\'s chief scientific officer, said plant classification can sometimes be a bit confusing.
Lewis tried to understand it: \"Although the plant was first identified and described in 1779,\" e-
Mail, \"the later author moved it to a different genus, E. G. g.
Dancing grass (Houtt)Merr. (where Merr.
Is the abbreviation of Merrill).
This new combination made in 1938 is also based on grass dancing, or from a plant perspective, Grass Dancing is the \"base\" for grass dancing and grass dancing \".
\"It\'s OK so far \".
But despite all this confusion, Lewis assured me that they are all the same plant: an Asian shrub of beans.
According to the International bean database and information service, it is not difficult to find it, and in Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Laos, Malaysia, Martinique, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
It can even be found on social Islands, a series of islands in remote parts of the South Pacific.
In the 19 th century, it was deliberately cultivated in Mauritius.
But no matter what you choose to call it, the grass, the mountain grass or the mebomia gyrans will not dance. It twitches.
In the early morning, when the sun rises, if the weather is not too hot, too wet or too dry, the fog will be burned from the field, as long as the soil conditions are good, the wind will not be too big, the leaves of Kampermpool\'s dance plants react with twitching to his singing.
Otherwise, most of the time the plant is hidden by orchids and protected by nets and barbed wire, with small, pointed leaves nodding and jumping in the breeze.
Kampermpool said defensively that it danced.
\"According to our experiments,\" he said, \"it doesn\'t work when we use electronics.
My friend, it likes humans, it likes musical instruments, but they have to be played by humans.
If you sing a song created by the king, it will dance better.
This is strange.
Ask a question. -any question --
To Kampermpool, he will respond by talking about the factory.
Because of this, he became a mystery.
He may have children, but he may not.
He allegedly spent several years studying desert plants in Iraq, but this may not be the case.
His PhD may be an honorary degree, or he may have obtained it as usual ---we don\'t know.
It\'s possible--
Kampermpool will definitely make him sound like--
He met with His Majesty King Bhumibol adoud of Thailand. [
Editor\'s note: Two years after the story was first published, a representative of the Doctor
Pradit contacted Sharon and said the doctor had never seen the King of Thailand, and he did not intend to make such an impression. ]
So when asked about the plant and the mechanism that actually moved its little flyer, it was not surprising that Kampermpool sighed and turned his eyes over, instead, he recalled the day he found the plant under the cool canopy of the jungle.
He then gave an impromptu speech on his years of nurturing and studying the plant;
Or claim that more than 30,000 visitors visit the nursery every year to visit the plant, although no one is present this morning;
And talked about his plans for the global market. -
You\'re our planner.
You will always have a place-
He is concerned that the dark special union, which tracks the nursery at night, controls the plant. ------------
According to a 1998 study published in the journal time Biology International, the movement of this plant is caused by swelling and contraction of motor cells buried in special organs deep in the leaves, called pulvin
By pulvini, the proton is pumped into the horizontal flyer, which in turn leads to the entry and exit of charged ions.
It is reported that \"in the state of the pump, the ions are absorbed, resulting in the flow of water into and out of the motor cells.
Ion loss and water outflow due to depolarization (
Contraction of motor cells).
\"In other words, when the proton is pumped into the pulp, the ions also enter, followed by water;
When the charged ion passively leaves the pulp, the water also moves from the pulp.
The movement of water molecules causes the motor cells in the leaves to shrink or expand, and when the water goes in and out, the small flyers of the plants will twitch.
But it doesn\'t make much sense to share this information with Kampermpool.
It is almost certain that he will express his ridicule by first crafting the sound of Sophie Lai\'s collapse ---Pshummph! --
Further comment was then declined. Pshummph!
Charles Darwin Pshummph!
Pu Shumi!
Kampermpool shrugged, stood up, sighed, and then pointed to the factory.
\"I will ask my people to prepare tea for us, my friend,\" he said, before going to his house and officially ending the discussion, he turned to a man who leaned against the hoe.
\"This is tea,\" he said a few minutes later . \" He lifted the Cup to his mouth and sipped loudly.
\"You know, this is dancing tea, my friend.
\"Put it in hot water and cook it and drink it,\" he said . \"
\"We drink every day!
\"Kampermpool sat in the shade, sipping a delicious little wine from the teacup, his little finger cocked up and carefully pointed to the white clouds that crossed the sky above his house.
\"This is a very good antioxidant tea,\" he said while drinking . \"
After 15 minutes, your cheeks will turn red.
The next morning, my friend, you will feel very relaxed.
\"It smells like marijuana.
Kampermpool slapped the table and shouted, \"no . \". \"No marijuana!
\"Maybe not, but studies conducted in the 1960 s showed that the leaves and roots of the desgygyrans-
May be Miss udon dancing in the sun. -
Contains psychedelic compounds such as N, N-
2. N,N-
Two-way pshumph! ------------
Hot and humid year
Turn around in ulonsani.
Crossing the town is like wading through the warm water.
Nevertheless, Kampermpool ran around in his nursery like a black man.
Hair generator absent
He carefully watered the withered plants.
Most of the time, after he has taken care of his plants, he will find a shady place, make a pot of tea and wait for the fields around to turn black.
He is a busy man.
Sometimes he teaches a class in college.
He is always busy running away from things he cannot escape: he is trapped.
Finally, after so many years,
Pradit Kampermpool is stuck by the plant.
He spent a lot of money researching, breeding and crossing the weeds.
It looks like a plant with its pointy little leaves nodding and rebounding in the breeze.
Decades of research have cost him more than the value of his house.
He likes the plant.
It represents a 25-
Campermpur\'s odyssey of the year
This is his only constant in the ocean of change.
The factory also provides an object lesson on what will happen to people who invest everything in what ultimately proves nothing.
Now, after spending 15 years searching for the plant in the jungle, and then another 10 years of careful breeding, Kampermpool finally persisted, stubbornly defending the indefensible is actually a dance plant.
\"It\'s a dancing plant.
\"He stands next to the factory now and looks at it sadly.
The root of it is on him;
The same root, he shook out the soil in a hurry, wrapped it in damp cloth, and brought it back to the nursery years ago.
Each year, these roots are deeply explored and explored in his life.
The roots can divide the boulders in the same way into two pieces, moving in the formation without attention and detection. Dr.
Pradit Kampermpool may tell you this, but he is walking to the shade of his nursery with a quick few steps and his shiny black hair swings in the orchid stems, waving a kettle to sing.
The story has changed since it was first published. d.
