Mimosa Plant Folds In When Touched

The mimosa pudica plant aka "Zombie Plant" is a sensitive plant species that folds in it's leaves when it is touched. SImilar to the plants from Avatar, as a defense mechanism the zombie plant will creep inwards or fold in as a defense mechanism when it feels like it is being threatened. This is a mimosa pudica pant growing kit, so it comes with a plastic growing container, 6 seed starter soil discs, and 10-20 mimosa pudica seeds. It will take 2-3 weeks for the plant to start growing and is a great resource to teach kids about plants and evolution and how there is no God.
