Some online seed companies sell mimosa seeds (Monrovia does not), however if you have access to a mimosa tree, the pods contain seeds which 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 plastic pots. Plant the seeds only half an inch deep and they will sprout in a few weeks.
