    Hmm...not sure about the pollination...Troy? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Wish I could tell you, but mine haven't flowered yet, if ever they do.

    If, NG, your plant does flower, you had better hope that it self-pollinates. A less practical, possible solution would be to buy another one and hope that they both flower simultaneously, and then cross-pollinate 'em. But definitely the surest way to obtain seeds would be from a certain person in Bali.

    Sorry to disappoint you guys but I got no idea how Mimosa polinates. It seems to flower almost constantly and there are multitudes of flowers on each plant so I doubt you'll have any probs with getting your own seed.

    It grows very rapidly and I would expect that with the smal species at least, you should have flowers within 4 to 6 months. That's just a guess!
    The bigger one maybe 6 to 8 and the very large one that grows into a mini tree (about 3 or 4 metres tall) will obviously take longer.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Interesting as I just some plants at nursery in CA for $2 as well. My first time seeing it in a store, but I have seen them in the wild. My girlfriend wanted to buy it, but I don't really think a weed is really worth that much.

    Anyway do a Google search using the keywords:
    mimosa pollination

    That should get you results. The web is a big place, full of information.

    Emesis,
    I haven't done a search like you mentioned, but I believe "Trigger Plant" is something else entirely. Correct me if i'm wrong [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
