Mimosa Pudica
Also known as: The Sensitive Plant, Touch Me Not, Tickle Me

Another one of Mother Nature's oddity plants and wonders of the world. Nicknamed mainly because of it's physical reaction to human touch and the vibration of sound. A favorite among children and it gets their curiosity and attention for sure. The plant’s unusually quick response to touch is due to rapid water release from specialized cells located at the bases of leaflet and leaf stalks. The leaves reopen in several minutes, and it is thought that this adaptation is a defense against browsing herbivores who may be startled by the movement. In addition to its response to physical stimuli, the leaves also droop in response to darkness and reopen with daylight, a phenomenon known as nyctinastic movement.

This creeping annual or perennial herb of the pea family Fabaceae originates from South and Central America, but it can be found in tropical and subtropical areas around the world today. It grows to a height of about 30 cm (1 foot) and will produce small globular pink or mauve flower puffs.
It can be container grown indoors next to a sunny window with some direct sunlight, so it makes for a great classroom experiment. Outside it is hardy down to USDA zone 9. It should be planted in well-draining loamy soil enhanced with peat moss to improve drainage. Water regularly to keep the soil moist, but not water logged. The plant is susceptible to root rot in compacted or overly wet soils.
It does contain toxic alkaloids that can harm humans and animals if ingested.

This offer is for 50 seeds.
