Mimosa (Sensitive Plant)

This beautiful fern-like plant native to the tropics is known as the sensitive plant because a delicate touch on its leaves will cause it to curl up to protect itself! The mimosa is a very easy plant to care for and will make a great addition to your garden.

Your sensitive plant should grow close to a window sill where it can receive some bright, direct sunlight. It may be brought outside for the summer!


Water regularly to keep the soil moist, allowing the top soil to dry between waterings. Water thoroughly, but make sure the roots are not sitting in water to prevent root rot.
