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.

Do you know where we can buy the plant or the seeds?

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
