The Q&A Archives: Sensitive Plant

Question: My daughter saw a sensitive plant at the local college greenhouse and was fasinated by how the leave folded up when touched. We would like to get one for ourselves. <br><br>Do you know where we can buy the plant or the seeds?<br><br>

Answer: Sensitive Plant or Mimosa pudica is a foliage house plant which is easy to raise and care for. I have seen them in most nurseries that deal with house plants. If you can't find them locally, you can order seeds from Stokes Seeds, ph# 716-695-6980, web site: The seeds are on page 75 of their current catalog, item number 1006
