Mimosa pudica - Sensitive Plant


This very cool plant definitely lives up to its namesake. While they close their leaves at night and open them again in the morning, the leaves also fold up if the plant is touched, shaken, or exposed to wind/heat/cold. A must-have for any plant collection!

Water: Consistently moist but not soggy.

Humidity: High humidity is preferred, but regular household levels are usually adequate.

Toxicity: Toxic to humans and pets if ingested. Mimosine, a toxic amino acid
