Description

Touch me if you dare! 

Description
  • The sensitive plant, also known as the Touch-me-not, is a peculiar shrub and is native to Brazil
  • Generally available during the warmer months (October to March), these are perennial, summer-growing garden plants often grown for its curiosity value
    • The compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, defending themselves from harm, and re-open a few minutes later
  • These are well established, mature, flowering size plants - essentially small bonsai’s 😂 with beautiful stems - trimmed down to ±10-15cm for bushier growth and are sold in 12cm pots
Shipping
  • Due to their size and fragile nature, we will not be sending touch me nots via courier this summer.  Online purchases are available for collection from Strawberry pot nursery (at no cost) or can be hand delivered within 50km of Centurion CBD via our community courier service - select your preferred option at checkout
  • During the warmer months, a selection of plants will also be available for purchase, in-store, at Strawberry Pot and Marvellous orchid - Boksburg
Care
  • The sensitive plant can be grown in full sun, a semi-shade spot outside or sunny windowsill with a minimum of 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
  • Like any normal garden shrub, sensitive plants are susceptible to attacks from woolly aphids, which is more prevalent during season changes and early in the growing season when fresh spring growth emerge. Inspect plants regularly, cut and discard affected growth and treat (according to the instructions) with Koinor or Rosecare Plus - available from most big nurseries and retail stores
  • 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

🔔 PRO tip > Mimosa Pudica is considered an annual but can easily last 5 years or longer if not left to flower.  Bushier plants also last longer (and are way more fun!) - Remove the growth tips when your plant is around 10-20cm tall and keep trimming during the growing season to promote bushier growth ⬇️
