    If you mean a mimosa plant, the stuff is a weed in most tropical places, so it shouldn't be too hard to find. I know of a parking lot at my university that has tons of mimosa plants throwing seeds everywhere. I personally hate the stuff, but I can get you a few seeds for sase if you want.

    DOH!!

    Nep G I have a couple of envelopes of Mimosa seed (2 different size species) with your name on them.

    You guys should contact Chris (Dionaea Enthusiast) as he has developed a very particular fertiliser called Coprophytes Delight that is specifically for Mimosa species.

    He may even be willing to sell you some if you ask him nicely!

    Cheers, Troy.

    LOL Troy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hey all,

    Coprophytes Delight...don't ask lol

    You'll first want to check out this site:
    http://www.bio.miami.edu/mimosa/mimosa.html

    I'm sure there are many websites selling Mimosa pudica. You may just want to do a search on, say, Google.

    The easiest way to propagate is with seeds. The process is explained in the above link. Just remember to soak them in hot water overnight first! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    More questions regarding this most excellent coprophytic exotic are welcome. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the link Chris.
    If you don't soak the seeds, they will still germinate, but will take much longer, 1-3 months (and maybe more after that). I had wondered about the germination, I had heard it was fast and that they got good germination, but I hadn't heard about soaking them in hot water, I guess that's why it took so much longer and so few of the seeds germinated.
