  • 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'll also notice that they are sensitive to heat too!
  • Once you're 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 it's 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!
