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.

To be honest I never bought these seeds from this seller...however I love this lil plant and wanted to share......
I got him these seeds to show him how to grow plants from seeds
They turned up very quickly
Put them in the fridge for a week
Soaked them for 24 hours
Then planted them
2 days later we have healthy shoots
Very happy with purchase
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. After 48 to 72 hours, they will be ready to place in seed pots. Make sure to keep damp, but not soaking. That will give them root rot. This plant likes plentiful water, but not standing water. It doesn't like to completely dry out between waterings. Hope this helps!
I would say the germination rate for these seeds is closer to 20%, not the 88% advertised. Buy accordingly.
