Grow Your Own Ticklish Plant
A fun children's seed planting gift. Tickle the leaves and watch them close!
Mimosa Puica is also known as Sensitive plant, TicleMe Plant and Touch-me-not. It is a creeping plant grown for its curiosity value. It can grow up to 18 inches if grown outdoors, with hairy and spiny stems. Its flowers resemble little purplish puffs that produce 1/2 inch long pods containing 3-4 seeds. The plant sleeps at night as it gently folds up its leaves but wakes again and spreads its leaves as the sun rises.
