HEIRLOOM. Mimosa pudica seeds, also known as the "Sensitive Plant", "Shy Plant", or "Touch-Me-Not". These seeds, once germinated, will grow into a plant that responds to being touched. Its delicate leaflets will curl upwards when you brush them with your finger, similarly to a Venus Fly Trap. This plant is excellent as both an indoor houseplant as well as an outdoor garden plant: its pink, puffy flowers are beautiful to look at and its rapid leaf movement is entertaining to watch. These plant seeds are a perfect gift for the novice gardener and experienced botanist alike.
