can anyone help on feeding and caring for mimosa pudica



According to Dr Hessayon, it needs average warmth, no less that 60 degrees F. in winter. Bright light, some direct sushine helps it. Keep the compost moist at all times but reduce watering in the winter. Mist leaves regularly. No feeding is mentioned. Hope this helps.

Hallo Marguerite - over here, Mimosa pudica 'the Sensitive Plant' is a smallish house plant! Don't treat yours differently on the strength of my advice above!!!!! I'd never forgive myself if anything drastic went wrong... :-(
