The sensitive plant goes by many names (humble plant, touch-me-not) but all can agree that Mimosa pudica is a must have in the home, especially if you have kids. The sensitive plant is a shrubby perennial plant native to tropical regions. The plant can be grown outdoors as an annual but is more commonly grown indoors for its unusual growing characteristics. When touched, its fern-like leaves close up and droop as if being tickled. Sensitive plants will also close their leaves at night. This unique sensitivity and ability to move has fascinated people since early times, and kids are especially fond of the plant. Not only are they fascinating, but attractive too. Sensitive houseplants have prickly stems and in summer produce fluffy pink, ball-shaped flowers.

Opened By Customs: Although over 99% of our orders reach the buyer intact, we have had a very small number of items opened by customs and seeds removed. When this happens we will resend seeds in a plain envelope with 48 hrs of being notified. When contacting us please provide a copy of any customs form or report.
Items Returned By Postal Services: If items are returned via a postal service due to not being collected, incorrect address provided by the buyer then the item can be resent but the buyer must pay the second postage charge.
