    Here's a better look at these strange plants. Zigs took 350 photos over two days to show these were moving continuously. I've never seen anything like it before!

    Great video who woulda thought how the cactus follows the sun . Plants that follow the sun are called Heliotropism, or solar tracking, is when a plant follows the movement of the sun during the day. I think Dancing is sexier…:rolleyes:

    This is not a case of the plants following the sun, which you can see from the way they move by night as well as day. They move in different directions as if looking for something.
    At the moment, Zigs is offline, as his computer seized up. It may take him a couple of days to get back as he doesn't have most of his passwords to get back in on his new computer.
    He has set the camera to watch these plants, with the inclusion of small bowls of water to see if that's what the plants are searching for. Watch this space.

    Tetters the dancing cactus did remind me of plants that follow the sun. If not it’s a great phenomenon to watch. Appreciate Zigs videos. Will Miss Zigs humor and videos hope the computer snafu is over soon.
