    20 mimosa pudica seeds "The Sensitive Plant"

    I have 20 Mimosa Pudica seeds offered in a giveaway. This is a non-carniverous plant. It is however a very fun,easy, and interesting plant to grow. The leaves retract if they are touched. But then they recover to full in a short time. It has a beautiful pink flower that reminds me of a fiber optic lamp. Kids love this plant and touching it does not harm or kill it. List your name if you are interested in participating in this giveaway drawing. Random winner chosen in a week.

    Okay since there are only 3 people you are all winners. 10 seeds each..when I planted 30 I got 25 plants. So germination rate is good. Send me a SASE. PM me for my address.

    Remember that this plant is invasive in some states~
    Keep it in the collection if possible

    Yes these seeds were just collected from my own plants. I bought 30 seeds and had 27 successfully germinate. I gave plants to all my neighbors. I kept 3 for myself. The best way to get great germination rates with these seeds is to use a 5 to 1 hot water (5 parts almost boiling water to 1 part cold water) soak the seeds until the water is cooled. Then plant the seeds. Mine sprouted within a week and grew very well. The growing medium that I used was peat/silica sand/perlite. Similar to a vft.
