    Yep, it's a Mimosa seedling! It's beginning to produce the characteristic leaves, which do indeed respond to touch. Wee! =D

    Two more seeds germinated the other day. I guess the key lesson here is don't give up on seeds without giving them plenty of time! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, I'm still waiting for some pudica to sprout even after several months.

    Ever heard of that bean variety introduced back into cultivation from beans found in ancient Anasazi ruins? read that somewhere--pretty amazing

    i never heard of ancient ruin beans but i swear the black beans i got from chi-chis the other day were more than ancient! interesting side fact: ancient balck beans dont sit well in the human stomach...ill spare you the details

    where did you guys get the seed and do either of you have any left over?

    i have a couple mimosa plants (6 really) in one pot and they are starting to get nice n bushy (each plant about a foot tall).

    id like to start a second pot...and a 3rd, 4th and so on...

    if my plants produce seed this season ill be happy to share whatever is left over.

    Hey Chris,

    The generous user 'fatboy' sent a huge bag of seed to PFT, who distributed upon request. Mine are from fatboy personally...and I've given them the location identification "cow pat in Indonesia." Really! That's where he found them! :-)

    Seeds should soak in water just beginning to boil and let cooled overnight and then plant the ones that swell. Repeat the process for the ones that didn't swell. I had seedlings germinate in 2 days doing this! When I was told to do this I was scared that they would burn to death, but it worked!
