    Hello Im new both to this forum and the wonders of cps. I have always believed that mimosa plants are carnivors but see nothing about them in cp sites. Are they tru carnivors and any ideas on growing them would be helpful.
    Many thanks in advance.

    No mimosa is not a cp. It just responds to touch to scare off predators. Here's an article on it:

    I grow some sensitive plants in my little green house. I grew them from seed in the spring and they are currently around a foot tall. They turn a reddish color when in direct sunlight. I grow them in a regular houseplant mix and i keep the soil moist. Hope this helps.
