3. Dancing Plants (Mimosa)


Mimosa Dancing Plant Seeds


Grow a plant that moves! Mimosa pudica is known as the 'sensitive plant'; the slightest touch will temporarily make the leaves fold up and stems collapse! At night too, the leaves and stems droop and make the plant look like it's gone to sleep.
