    The tray of seeds I had just about given up on but decided to just sit in front of a windowsill has developed a seedling. It doesn't look like what a Mimosa plant looks like, but could it be an early stage? It has two leaves, both of which are oval-shaped. Is this what a very young seedling looks like, or is this just some sort of weed?

    i think, but i m not sure, that mimosas start growth with slightly oval leaves.

    i looked at mine after reading your post and a few of em have leaves like you mentioned so maybe they are mimosas...congratulations

    I potted up the seedling. Cross your fingers that it's really a Mimosa, and that it survives!

    Those leaves are called cotyledon, or seed leaves. I think the seedlings of most plants have these. Don't worry about it--mine still have remaining cotyledon leaves. Next, the plant will produce those attractive fern-like leaves that curl up in annoyance when touched!

    havron since you got a digital camera you can post a picture here

    but you have to upload it to a web site or something
    to post pictures you do this

    ]img[htt://****]/img[

    replace the ] with [ and the [ with ]

    and the http://**** of the picture when you right click on the picture and goto props it shows the weblink on address, so copy that and paste there with the /jpg thingy

    The new leaves should be produced within a week, but it really depends on its growing conditions.
