This plant is grown in hot areas and has fruits in the form of capsules filled with a liquid. If we tap on the capsules with a hard object, it will explode and the liquid inside will be dispersed at 2 metered around. We don’t know what plant is this and we don’t know if the liquid inside its capsules is poisoning or not. Also another hint, the plant grows horizontally and never vertically. Please help identify this plant. Thank you.
