    The flowers are around an inch across, if I remember correctly. "They open in early morning, when sparkling dew coats the sparkling ground, while sparkling sunlight sparkles overhead." how poetic

    As I said, the plants themselves are uglier than a Pilea 'Purple Waffle.' But they are tough--you could practically drop a nuclear weapon on one and it would just re-sprout from its roots.

    Ohmygod :o
    I decided to sow some more M. pudica seeds. Using roughly the same mix I had before, I popped the tray in the oven to keep it warm. In 2 days they sprouted! I've been waiting over 5 weeks for my first batch to sprout. So it seems warmth is the secret formula, at least it was a secret to me [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hooray!

    The plants won't stop growing til the fat lady sings and lets hope that'll be for a long time.

    Hmm...perhaps I should try sowing some more Mimosa seeds in pots in my Neps tank, as it's the hottest part of the house. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Another seedling appeared yesterday in the original setup on the windowsill. That makes #5 out of 12 so far. Sometime you just need to give them time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
