    Trying to find out if anyone knows about "touch-me-nots"? I don't even know what they're proper name is. Apparently they fold in when touched. If anyone knows, can you tell me where I can find them, if they're carniverous or not, or if they would be small enough to fare well in my terrarium with my CP's?

    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Carnivorous Newbie, I have a pack of Mimosa pudica (sensitive plant) seeds which I never had time/space to sow (I will soon with my new (larger) highland enclosure. The company name on this packet is Lake Valley Seeds. I got it from a Franks Nursery and Crafts garden center shop. When I was a kid my uncle gave me some Mimosa seeds by Northrup King called "Ticklish Tim" which was the same plant. It grew in very low humidity under a normal 2 light flourescent at that time I just had a few "weird" plants in my room on a shelf. Mimosa pudica is a very easy and neat plant-wait til it flowers they look like pink pincusions!

    I also had a plant called the Aquatic Sensitive plant which had the same type of touch sensitive leaves but grew from a floating stem which looked like a white cigar which had been floating in water. This one folds up it's leaves on it's own after about 12 hours or so of light each day.

    Um Touch-me-nots are NOT Mimosa/sensitive plants. They are called touch me nots because of thier explosive seed pods. If you touch their seed pods they explode hurling thier seed 30-40 feet away!

    I mentioned sensitive plants based on his description of leaves that fold in when touched. I'd never heard them called Touch Me Nots but things have different 'trade names' everywhere you go.
