    Hi.
    I grow Mimosa from seeds. I have about 15 of them. all of them (some of them outside, and some in a terrarium) stoped growing, after they've opened there 5th leaf set.
    They grew so fast, and suddenly stopped (they don't grow for 3 weeks...).
    Any one knows why?

    Last year some of mine did the same thing! They grew 3-4" tall and just stayed that way. Where are these seed from?

    Hi guys

    If you got the seeds from PFT or one of the PFT members then chances are they came from me, here in Indonesia.
    Actually the species of Mimosa from here only grows to a couple of inches tall. They are more like a ground cover, and spread out along the ground.
    They should continue to produce more branches, etc but they won't get any taller.
    There is a HUGE species in Sumatra, about 10 feet tall. I'll try and get some seeds of that when I'm there and send them on to Phil and Jaie to distribute.

    Cheers, fatboy.

    Basa!! (I think in english it's "Bammers" [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )
    I would relly love to get some of the taller Mimosa seeds.
    (I don't want a huge one, but surely I want bigger...)

    Yes, please! :-) Do you know the name of the Sumatran one? Thanks.
