    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

    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!

    More questions regarding this most excellent coprophytic exotic are welcome.

    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.
