How to Plant/Grow Sensitive Plant Seeds ?
The good old Mimosa Pudica...'Sensitive Plant'. I have tried planting the seeds after soaking overnight, not soaking,planting in a good soil less mix about 1/4 in deep, on top of the soil,not covering at all. I read the directions on the seed packages, and they all have different instructions for this simple,easy to grow, curious plant.
I have the last package I am going to buy, that now says, soak for 2 hours, and plant on top of the soil, do not cover the seeds. I havent gotten a single sprout in 3 tries. They are fresh seeds, in sealed packages,and this last pack is from Kew Gardens! So they are good seeds. But for some reason I just cant get any seedlings. Any ideas on how to actually plant these, and get some germination? Soak them, dont soak them, cover them, don't cover them? It is practically a weed, and I cant get 1 plant. I just want to grow this curiosity again,...and I haven't gotten a single seedling yet. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
