    Well, after a bit of research, it looks like the only other Mimosa species that moves is Mimosa nuttallii, the catclaw brier. It doesn't look like either of your plants, but that's just me.

    Weirdos..

    Maybe its just a ssp.

    On google when i search mimosa pudica, the 400 first pictures look like my leaves lol
    Anyway, its not so important ! At least we have a mimosa. If i get seed of my plants, do you want some ?

    Well, the description still matches mine as well.... 10-26 leaflets per lamina, bipinnate. I know mine started out with fewer leaflets, only 2-6, when it was young, but as it's grown it's gone up to about 12 now (and as it seems a lot of people can't seem to keep these guys alive, many pics may be of juvenile plants). However, with any species there is expected to be variation, some naturally with more leaflets, some less, etc. We may just have different varieties.
    Enough of the debate, though, let's see some pictures of your guy's plants!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    There no debate, both of us grow a mimosa
    Again, i have plenty of seeds if you want to try my specie, i can ship you some for free.

    Of course, if you have some seeds of your mimosa specie, im interested :-)

    When I was in Costa Rica, I had a local point out a tree to me that actually walked with its roots. It didn't move fast enough to see like the plants you guys are discussing, but the whole tree would move and follow the water. IF I get a chance I will try to find out what it was called.
