Sensitive Plant - Knowledgebase Question

Question by bbreina01

I was wondering if you could help me with finding a certain type of plant. I was given a plant, when I was a child, many years ago, I was told it was called a sensitive plant. Whenever you would speak to it up close it would wilt, and with in 20 minutes it would be standing upright again. I thought it was the cutest. I am wanting to get one for my kids but can not find one. I'm figuring that was not the name for it. Do you know of any such type of plant?

A search on sensitive plant came up with Mimosa pudica. A plant source database search came up with a few plant sources and seed sources. You will need to check their websites to see if it is the plant you remember and for current availability. Good luck!
