    Wanted: Mimosa pudica seeds

    Just like it says in the title. I haven't seen these offered lately, but I know one of you out there in warmer parts must have some choking a far corner of your yard or something. PM me to work out an offer.
    Thanks,
    ~Joe

    No, I'm looking for Mimosa pudica, which grows as a scrambling, thorny shrub. The common name is sensitive plant or touch-me-not, as the foliage droops and pretends to be wilted when the plant is disturbed.

    No, they don't deal well with the cold. They can be grown as annuals but that's not what I plan to do - I want to use them for terrarium projects.

    Not sure how to pollenate it either. I was under the impression that it was relatively easy, maybe even self-pollenating, but I've never been able to get seeds.
