Description for Mimosa Pudica, Touch me not, Chui mui

The most interesting feature of Mimosa pudica plant (sensitive plant) is its ability to fold the leaves when touched that is why it is called touch me not.

The stem is erect, slender and branching. The leaves are bipinnate. Touch me not plant is propagated by seeds and cuttings. Its an extremely easy plant to grow and germinates quickly. Seed sowing must be done when a temperature is warm.

Planting and care

Choose a warm, sheltered location when growing. The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot.

SunlightSoilWaterTemperatureFertilizer
Loves to grow in full sun, however, it thrives in partial shade too.Well-drained soilWater regularly when plant is in active growth. In winter withhold or reduce watering.-Fertilize the plant with all purpose liquid fertilizer once in a month in growing season. Application of compost in spring is also helpful in healthy growth of plant.

Caring for Mimosa Pudica

  • Soak your sensitive plant seeds in water for about 1 to 2 days to soften their hard shells.
  • Have a small pot ready, fill with good quality compost and sprinkle your soaked Mimosa pudica seeds lightly on the surface of the soil. Gently cover with about 2-4cm of loose soil, but don't compress it.
  • Water the soil - but not too much. Sensitive plants can move but they cant swim!
  • Keep your seeds in a warm place until they sprout in about 1 week.
  • Once they have sprouted, they like to be watered well for the first week or so while their roots develop.
  • Make sure that your new sensitive plants are getting lots of sunlight - they love to sunbathe.
  • And guess what, as they grow, you will also notice that they are sensitive to heat too!
  • Once your plant gets bigger, you will notice its leaves change shape to look like a fern with lots of little sets of brushes.
  • This is because the first leaves your plant gets are just to help it grow. After that, the plant begins to grow its sensitive leaves.
  • Have fun tickling your new sensitive plant and watch it curl up and pretend to sleep!
  • Try different ways of making it curl up. Tickle it, touch is, blow on it, the sensitive plant responds in different ways to all of these stimuli, so have fun!
