The Q&A Archives: Best Soil for TickleMe Plant

Question: I am growing a TickleMe Plant and it really does MOVE when I tickle it. The leaves close and even the branches move. What is the best soil mixture to keep it alive.

Answer: "TickleMe Plant," also known as a Sensitive Mimosa, will grow well in any regular potting soil in bright light and average moisture levels. Treat it as you would any houseplant, watering when the soil begins to dry out and keeping it out of direct sunshine but in a bright spot indoors. Enjoy your plant!
