My child had the most fun demonstrating her TickleMe Plant for show and tell. The TickleMe Plant will close its leaves and lower its branches when you tickle it. All the kids and the teachers were so excited to see it.

How To Grow A Tickle Me Plant
by: Lucy

The Tickle Me Plant is commonly called: sensitive plant, humble plant,or touch-me-no.
The botany name is Mimosa Pudica.

You can grow them from seed.
1) Soak the seeds in warm water overnight.
2) Insert the seeds about 1/8 of an inch deep into potting soil.
3) Keep it moist by covering the pot with clear plastic.
4) Move the plant to a brighter place when it sprouts. These plants like sunshine, so it should be placed in the sunny part of the house if planted indoor.

It will take at least a month or more before the tickle me plant is ready to react to touch.

Have them in your house and let your kids and friends enjoy them.
