Mr Fothergills - RHS Flower - Mimosa Pudica - 100 Seeds

£1.85

Also known as the ‘Action Plant’, this fascinating variety is a tropical evergreen which is surprisingly easy to grow. It’s a short-lived perennial with incredible leaves that physically pull back when touched. A true wonder of the natural world producing delicate, fern-like foliage with remarkable purple blooms. Grow indoors on a bright windowsill all year around.

Sow indoors: January to December, in medium-sized pots of compost. Sow thinly, cover lightly with a fine layer of compost. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approx. 20oC. Germination maybe slow and erratic. Seedlings appear 14-42 days. Remove cover when seedlings appear. Thin out to 5cm apart, leaving around half a dozen seedlings to grow on. Water sparingly, allowing compost to almost try out between waterings.
