Care Instructions for the Touch-Me-Not plant

  • Transplanting: Before transferring your plant into its new pot or into your garden, give it a good watering the day before – this will help its roots take to the new soil. Avoid over-handling the root ball as you transfer the plant – it is sensitive to touch after all!
  • Light: The Touch Me Not Plant loves bright light, and ideally a mix of sun and shade. Choose a location that gets morning or evening light – eastern or western exposure is perfect. Just be sure to avoid areas that are either extremely dark or excessively bright.
  • Watering: Mimosa Pudica thrives in soil that is consistently moist. When the top layer of soil dries out, give it a good drink of water – but down drown it! If you’re potting your plant, choose a pot with good drainage, and try not to let the pot sit in a tray full of water.
  • Fertilisation: Fertilising isn’t strictly required, but a high potassium fertiliser (like tomato plant fertiliser) given in small doses every two weeks during spring and summer will help its flowers last longer, and provide an energy boost for its leaf movements.
