Planting Instructions:

  1. Seed Preparation: Mimosa Pudica seeds do not require special preparation. Direct sow them in pots or the garden after the last frost, or start them indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date.

  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil with good aeration. A mixture of potting soil and perlite or sand works well for container planting.

  3. Sowing: Sow the seeds on the soil surface and lightly press them in. Mist the soil with water to keep it moist but not waterlogged.

  4. Germination: Place the seed trays or pots in a warm location with indirect sunlight. Mimosa Pudica seeds typically germinate within 1-2 weeks.

  5. Transplanting Seedlings: Once seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves and are sturdy enough, transplant them into larger containers or directly into the garden, spacing them 12-18 inches apart.

Growing Conditions:

  1. Light: Mimosa Pudica thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate partial shade but may not exhibit as vigorous growth or leaf movement.

  2. Soil: Use well-draining, loamy soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Avoid overwatering, as soggy soil can lead to root rot.

  3. Watering: Water moderately, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Mimosa Pudica prefers slightly moist soil but not constantly wet conditions.

  4. Fertilizing: Feed the plants with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season to support healthy growth and flowering.

Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Trim back any leggy or overgrown stems to promote a bushier appearance and encourage new growth.
  • Protection: Mimosa Pudica is sensitive to cold temperatures. If grown outdoors in colder climates, bring potted plants indoors during winter or protect them with frost cloth.
  • Pest Control: Monitor for pests such as aphids and spider mites. Use organic insecticidal soap or neem oil if pest infestations occur.
