Ever Grow the Plant That MOVES When You TICKLE It?
Daddy come quick, my plant just moved when I tickled it my daughter Rebecca screams from her bedroom. You can imagine the excitement in the house. My daughter Rebecca and I have successfully grown TickleMe Plants that close their leaves and lower their branches when we tickle them. With proper care they can even produce pink puff ball flowers.
Here is all you have to do to grow your own TickleMe Plant!
The first two leaves will not be ticklish. In about three
weeks, the second set of TickleMe Plant leaves will appear
and they will move when you tickle them. TickleMe Plants
are best grown as house plants and can even be placed in a
bright location outside during the warmer months. They are
frost sensitive, so be sure to bring them inside before the
cold weather arrives. They produce pink puff ball flowers.
TickleMe Plants can live for a year or more and grow to
about one foot plus in height.
Native to Brazil, TickleMe Plants can be found growing wild there and in other tropical areas. The scientific name for the TickleMe Plant is Mimosa pudica. It also has been called shy grass, sensitive plant and other names throughout the world.
