The tickle-me plant is also known as the sensitive or humble plant and touch-me-not plant. I first learned about it by the name of Ticklish Tim. Whatever you call this plant, Mimosa Pudica is a must-have!
Mimosa Pudica is a shrubby perennial plant that originates from tropical regions. Even though the plant can survive outdoors as an annual, it is more often grown indoors because of its strange growing habits.
The Mimosa plant is a unique and fascinating species of plant that has captivated people for centuries. Its leaves are sensitive to touch and will close up or droop when they are tickled, similar to a Bracken fern. Additionally, the leaves of the Mimosa plant will also close at night. This sensitivity and ability to move have fascinated people since early times, especially kids.
Mimosa plants aren't only delightful, but beautiful as well. Tickle me houseplants have spiky stems and come summertime, will generate fluffy pink blooms in the shape of a ball. Though it does have thorns that can be quickly clipped off to avoid possible injury.
As a tropical plants, Mimosa plants best thrive in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. But if kept indoors, tickle me plants will do well near a bright or partially sunny window.
Soaking your seeds in hot water overnight before planting them will help them to germinate quicker. Follow the planting instructions on the seed packet for proper seed depth and for the best temperature and time of year to plant them so they will grow properly.
Germinate your seeds, wait for the sprouts, and then soon thereafter you should see their first leaves. However, don't expect these new leaves to be "ticklish." The earliest it will take before the plant is ready to react to touch is a month from now at best.
We hope you give this gift idea a try - it really is a great plant!
A thoughtful present to give the plant lover coworker with a green thumb!

The Multi Tool Pen is a great Christmas gift for a coworker or anyone who loves being prepared or anyone who enjoys functional gifts.

Personally, I love these writing utensils and use them daily. And everyone I have gifted them to also loves this multi-tool pen!
But sadly, my husband left his on his desk and a coworker figured they needed it more than he did. Bad coworker!
Personally, I like this one - this is my favorite color in a multitool pen because the yellow color is a throwback to the good old Number 2 pencil (which I loved the smell of and to mark my teeth on - kids!). But if you're looking for a sleek black and grey tipped one you can find that on Amazon or on Uncommon Goods.
