Mimosa pudica

£5.00

Mimosa pudica is commonly known as the Sensitive Plant and is a fascinating and intriguing plant known for its rapid movement in response to touch.  This characteristic makes it a popular choice for plant enthusiasts. It is native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America. The plant has a creeping or trailing growth habit and can spread across the ground. Stems may have small thorns. Leaves are oblong and small, arranged in a feather-like pattern along the central stem.

Mimosa pudica is generally low-maintenance but benefits from regular pruning to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth.

We use 100% recyclable packaging, using FSC Certified cardboard boxes but if you are happy to have your order packaged in pre-used packaging, please tick this box.
