The Q&A Archives: Seed Starting

Question: what does a mimosa tree need to spout?

Answer: The seeds in the pod of a mimosa can be planted and they will grow into new little trees. Allow the pods to ripen on the trees. When they begin to twist and split, you can harvest the seeds and plant them either in the ground or in potting soil in plastic pots. Plant the seeds only half an inch deep, keep them warm (65-70F), keep the soil moist but not soggy and they will sprout in a few weeks. Best wishes with your new mimosa trees!
