    are there any other plants besides mimosas, that close their leaves then touched? because unless the one i had wasnt a mimosa, i should be right..it was a long time ago, but i dug up one from a golf course and grew it for about two years. it had thorns and the flowers were kinda like pink balls (just the shape) and when i touched it on accident, the seed pods just "blew up" and shot some seeds.

    VFT that sounds exactly right, apart from the seed pod part.
    The smallest Mimosa is like a low ground cover, it's thorny and has flowers just like you remeber - fuzzy pink balls. The seeds are in dry, bean-like pods though and they don't move or explode.

    Cheers, Troy.

    I have seen the plant that moves its leaves and branches when you tickle it. Has anyone elseKids call these mimosa plants TickleMe Plants. I just grew seventy five of these plants with my school kids. They did get thorns and amazing cotton candy like flowers. My school got them at TickleMePlant.com because they 100% guaranteed their seeds would grow to become ticklish. They did in 3 weeks. TickleMe Plants are NOT carnivorous, they wouldn't hurt a fly, but I bet they scare them when they move.

    Your about a week too late to snag a mimosa on the trading forum.

    Holy crap! I didn't even notice! I often check the forums and see random threads that have like three pages and think, "wow, there was some action on the forums this afternoon!" Little did I know there was some action on the forum five years ago! lol.
