Mimosa Sensitive Plant

The Mimosa Sensitive Plant (Mimosa pudica) is a fun and unusual plant that absolutely loves the sun! Kids especially enjoy the Sensitive Plant as it actually moves when you touch its leaves. The fine leaflets open in the daylight, but when they’re touched they collapse downward. An hour or so later, they’ll come back up again.


As the plants mature, they form small puffs of pink bloom which add an extra benefit to this fascinating species. What a perfect way to introduce children to the world of plants!


Remember, the Sensitive Plant thrives in a sunny location, preferably in temperatures of 60°-65°F or higher. This makes them a perfect addition to a windowsill or light garden. For best results, it is recommended that you prune your Sensitive Plant only during the active growing season of spring and summer.
