Green-fingered quake watchers get their gardening mitts on Earthquake Plants

Botanical News: Japan

Feb 08, 2007
Flowers with incredible abilities, including earthquake prediction, electromagnetic wave distortion and mosquito repellence are Japan's latest hit gardening products. The "Jishin Yochi Kusa", or Earthquake Plant is said to have mysterious properties, and there is supposedly scientific data that supports the Earthquake Plant's ability to predict seismic activity - a wildly welcome ability in the world's most earthquake-prone country. The Earthquake Plant is part of the Mimosa family. It is said to fold its leaves shut hours before a detectible earthquake. The plant shuts its leaves at night anyway, so if its abilities are actually as accurate as they're supposed to be, it'd have to be daylight to check it out.
