    My plant isn't anywhere near big enough to make seeds yet, and I have no room for any more....
    On the other hand, I seriously need to repot my Desmodium, they're not looking too hot anymore....

    Cool! And as for the telegraph plants (Desmodium), my original plants I posted died (of course), but I just got 3 more seedlings, possibly of a different variety, considering the seed color, to sprout. We shall see!

    Well, if you ever need any more mimosas, let me know. :P Things take over everywhere.

    My mimosa is doing perfectly fine. The plant reached about 3 feet long before the tip went bad, and now it's got a couple new growth points on the sides, and up to 16 leaflets per leaf!
