Mimosa pudica (Sensitive Plant, Touch-me-not) Seeds

Ref. Product : 0005 |
Writing an opinion

Mimosa pudica, also called sensitive plant, sleepy plant and the touch-me-not is a source of fascination to adults and children alike. When touched, the narrow fern-like leaflets they almost instantaneously fold together and the leaf stalk droops. This sometimes sets off a chain reaction, with several leaf stalks falling on top of one another.

The plant will gradually returns to normal, taking up to about half an hour. This touch-induced movement of leaves is known scientifically as thigmonasty, and is thought to be a defensive mechanism against grazers. At night, the leaves will also fold and bend in movements known as nyctonastic movements (reaction to absence of light).

In temperate climates, it is grown mainly as an indoor plant, usually for its fascinating behaviour. In its natural environment it is a shrub-like plant, growing to a height of about 60cm.
