PLANT CARE Mimosa Pudica: Growing a happy and healthy sensitive plant (Touch me not)

THE HELP FILES: GROW LIKE A PRO

The complete beginners guide with basic care instructions.  Learn how to grow the sensitive plant (touch me not) in our South African climate

  • The sensitive plant can be grown in a semi-shade spot outside or sunny windowsill with a minimum of 4-6 hours direct morning sun
  • Water every other day to ensure soil stays moist without letting it dry completely or leaving your plant with wet feet for extended periods of time to prevent rot
  • Plants can be grown in a 12cm pot in an equal ratio mixture of compost and potting soil with perlite or silica sand added for drainage. Take care when repotting - they are very sensitive to root disturbance
  • These are semi-tropical plants and do not handle frost well. Protect during wintertime and watch them take off again during springtime
  • Fertilise with a nitrogen-rich fertiliser once a month during summer for optimal growth
  • The soil may be covered with spanish- or green forest moss to maintain humidity. Note that this moss is used as a soil conditioner for tropical plants and is heavily fertilised. It is not live sphagnum moss and not suitable for carnivorous plants
