    I just bought four small Mimosa pudica, at a buck fifty each. I was wondering if anyone has grown these before and has any tips.

    PS I have been looking for these for a while, and it is really cool to see them curl up when touched.

    I have grown them before. They like lots of light (full sun) and like to have moist soil. When they flower make sure you pollinate the flower with a paint brush or toothpick or else they will not produce seed IME.

    they flower more towards mid-late summer IME, since I think they are pretty much annuals and it takes them that long to build up enough "juice" to flower- tho I am up in the Great White North

    I have grown them as indoor plants. Just be aware that they are thorny which makes moving them a hassle when they get to be of any size.
