The plant that Crane touches as they search for the lost colony is Mimosa pudica, a plant that is truly sensitive to touch, as the leaves close up when something or someone comes in contact with them. But the leaves don't close up for days, only for some hours.
Abbie: You are sure you wanna stay in this old cabin? It's a bit of a fixer-upper.

Abbie: Look at you, copping some 'tude.
