Product Description

Grow Sensitive Plant from fresh Mimosa Pudica flower seeds. The Sensitive Plant is aptly named mainly because of it's physical reaction to human touch. When you brush the leaves of Mimosa Pudica, you will notice that they will close for a few seconds to minutes, later opening back up. The leaves are not the only thing to react however, the branches themselves will also move when the leaves are touched. Each plant will grow several branches filled with with touchable leaves. Each Pinna will contain 10 to 26 leaflets. Mimosa Pudica, or "Sensitive Plant" will reach an average mature height of about 18 to 24 inches tall, but can sometimes grow to a couple of feet. They are established as annual plants, growing quickly and later dying with the first frost. The Mimosa Pudica plant may produce pink blooms through the summer after a few months of growth. The flowers are roughly 1/2 inch in diameter and will become more and more visible as the plants grow older.

Okay, there's nothing wrong with these seeds at all. The only problem is the instructions aren't fail safe. Here's what to do to ensure your purchase is NOT wasted.

These seeds are VERY tough, so they need extra effort to make them germinate.

FIRST Refrigerate for one week.

Then gather the following items:
- 1 cup of water than has been standing for 24 hours
- paper towels
- a plate
- a large ziplock baggie
- heating pad

This is the way I've germinated hard seeds since I was a child.

First, remove the outer skin of these seeds. They are in little pods. Take care. It is easy to confuse the seeds for their thin pods. The seeds are so small. That also makes the nick method of germinating very hard.

Place a layer or two of paper towels on a plate. Add enough water that it begins to climb up the towels, but is not standing in the plate. Place your seeds slightly spread out on the towels. Cover with another paper towel or two and press down so that the water starts to saturate the new cloths. add more water if necessary so that it's all saturated, but NOT dripping. Roll the towels up VERY loosely and place in the zip lock bag. DO NOT close the baggie all the way. Leave a 1-inch opening. I even open the baggie all the way a couple times a day and close back (with the one inch gap still in place) to let fresh air in. Plants need air.

Place the baggie back on the plate and place the plate on a heating pad on LOW in a safe place where it can be monitored. After just 24 hours, if you carefully unroll part of the baggie and separate the layers, you will see seeds popping open, and maybe even germinating. Placing in sunlight will help. The baggie will keep them from drying out.

I chilled the packet of seeds in the fridge for 5 days. I nicked 20, and soaked 20 for 24 hours in a wet paper towel. I planted both of those, no germination from either yet after a week. However, I left another 20 seeds soaking in a paper towel for 48 hours and 16 of them have started growing. Planted these and already have half inch shoots

I tried starting a few of these seeds and didn't have the best luck. Not many germinated and they took a while to do so. They didn't last long after germination either. I was determined to grow some of these, so I decided to try starting all of the remaining seeds in the hopes that I could get a couple of plants out of them.

For my second attempt, I started the seeds with a seed heat mat. I'm pretty sure my germination rate was close to 100%! I kept them on the heat as seedlings and didn't lose any!

These seeds were great and I would definitely buy them again! I ended up with a ton of great, strong, beautiful and fun plants!

My seeds have sprouted! I don't think I'm going to get nearly the germination rate that's on the package, but that's why I have 100. I've grown them before by this seller and had a similar experience. The plants grew and were really fun to play with and show friends! I even put a few into little pots and gave them as neat little gifts. Easy to grow! Seed Needs is also a great seller I've bought from many times

Arrived on time. I first kept the seeds in refrigerator for a week, then soaked 20 seeds in hot water for one day, and planted them in peat pots, kept them in a plastic bag like a small green house be placed indoor by a window. Two third of them germinated in three days. I planted them each in a small pot and moved them to backyard . It's been three weeks now and they are growing nicely.

I have 25 healthy shoots out of 40 seeds I planted in the last week. Very pleased so far and hoping all of these grow into adult sensitive plants. After reading other reviews on how to germinate, this is what I did:
1. Refrigerated seed packet for 1 week.
2. Soaked 40 seeds for 24 hours in room-temperature water.
3. Set A of 20 seeds I planted and covered with a ziploc bag to make a mini greenhouse. Set B of 20 seeds I wrapped in a wet (saturated, not dripping) paper towel, put it in a ziploc with a 1-inch opening, and clothes-pinned it to my baseboard heat. Unzipped all the way a couple times during day to let more air in.
4. 24 hours later, I removed Set B from the wet paper towel and planted those as well, in the same manner as Set A. 13/20 seeds had shoots coming out at the time.
5. After 1 day passed, Set B started to send shoots out of the dirt. In the evening of the same day, Set A also started sending shoots up.
Set A currently has 12 shoots / 20 seeds, and Set B has 13 shoots / 20 seeds. So I'm pretty happy. The damp paper towl + heat seems to have sped up the germination process, though it had only 1 additional seed sprout. Hoping to have some healthy, adult sensitive plants soon!
