Mimosa, Sensitive Plant (Mimosa pudica) - 50 Seeds - Moves when touched
• American Grown Seeds
• USDA Zone: 3-11
The Sensitive Plant, scientifically known as Mimosa pudica, is an extraordinary and fascinating addition to any garden. One of its most intriguing features is its rapid response to touch; when its leaves are lightly brushed or shaken, they fold inward and droop, only to reopen minutes later. This "shy" behavior has made it a favorite among both young gardeners and the young at heart. Apart from its touch-sensitive nature, it showcases lovely pink, fluffy ball-shaped flowers. Perfect as a conversation piece and a garden gift, this plant will add a touch of wonder to any setting.
Growing Mimosa pudica from flower seed is not difficult. It is recommend to soak the seeds 24 hours in water. Press seeds into the soil and lightly cover with 1/8 inch of soil. Keep the seed moist until germination. Covering the pot with clear plastic can help to hold in the moisture, but remove the plastic as soon as there is a sprout.
