SOLD OUT -This one went fast, and it looks like our seed suppliers are all of it at the moment.
The Seed Savers Exchange - (Mimosa pudica) The ornamental pinnate leaves of this Brazilian species close when touched by children (or adults, who also cannot resist them). This pea relative bears lilac-pink spherical flowers which precede the development of its seed pods and does best when watered sparingly and from below. The species is tough and well suited to containers, but one must be careful not to “tickle it to death.” Tender annual, 8-10" tall.
Instructions: Soak the seeds in hot tap water for 20 minutes before sowing. Make sure to firmly press the soil down when sowing. Best watered at ground level to avoid “tripping” the leaves.
Direct Seed: 1/8" Deep
Germination: 21-30 Days
Transplant: 3-4" Pots
Light: Full Sun
