Our Mimosa pudica seeds are part of the Radis & Capucine collection of the world's most exotic trees and plants to grow at home. Mimosa pudica is also known as the sensitive, sleepy or shy plant because of the way the leaves fold in and close whenever it is touched.

Mimosa pudica is easy to grow indoors and it's a plant that's sure to amaze children and visitors, when they discover its secret defence system. The plant is native to Brazil and will reach a height of 40 cm, with a spread of 10cm. The plant's sensitivity is renowned, the leaves close when it's touched by a breath of air or human finger. This sensitivity is protection against the weather and herbivore predators. The leaves will open up again after a few moments and this reflex movement display is performed by motor cells in the plant which are located at the base of petioles and leaflets.
