Mimosa Pudica (pudica = shy) sensitive plant - moving plant


20 Fresh seeds - Mimosa pudica is really Easy to grow, no stratification needed, great for Kids!

Mimosa pudica means "shy, bashful or shrinking" also called Sensitive Plant and "touch-me-not", is a creeping annual or perennial herb often grown for its curiosity value! The mimosa pudica compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, re-opening minutes later. The species is native to South America and Central America, but mimosa pudica is now a pantropical weed. The leaves of the mimosa pudica are compound leaves. The leaves also close under various other stimuli, such as touching, warming, blowing, or shaking.

Mimosa Pudica movement occurs when specific regions of cells lose turgor pressure, which is the force that is applied onto the cell wall by water within the cell vacuoles and other cell contents.

When mimosa pudica is disturbed, specific regions on the stems are stimulated to release chemicals including potassium ions which force water out of the cell vacuoles and the water diffuses out of the cells, producing a loss of cell pressure this differential turgidity between different regions of cells results in the closing of the leaflets and the movement of the leaf petiole.

Mimosa Pudica growing instructions included.
