Mimosa Pudica

A plant grown from seed collected in Goa. The leaves of the Mimosa Pudica (pudica is Latin for shy) will contract when disturbed by movement or rapid changes in temperature. Only one seed germinated from a collection of about 30. The growth in the photo above has taken about four months, with most of the new foliage appearing within the last month.
