Mimosa pudica, known as sensitive plant, is fascinating to children and adults alike because its leaves quickly fold up when touched or exposed to heat, returning to normal after a few minutes. It is most sensitive in full sun. Pudica follows the common mimosa form with attractive pink pom pom flowers. Although it may survive as a perennial in its native Brazil it is typically grown as an annual in cultivation and makes a good potted plant. Reaching 12? in height, pudica has reportedly been grown both indoors and out. It is also said to have various medicinal properties that are employed in Ayurvedic medicine. It is also reportedly being studied by pharmaceutical companies for uses such as hair replacement and nerve regeneration. **ATTENTION**THESE SHIP FROM OUR GROWER IN FL.
