Mimosa pudica, like stem cells (and occasionally scientists) are sensitive and dynamic. In response to being tickled, Mimosa pudica will fold its leaves away. Unlike stem cells, mimosa plants can be grown quite easily without extensive optimisation of conditions. Take a break from growing cells and grow a mimosa with Qkine’s #mymimosa growathon!

tweet us with an update on your mimosa @qkinebio #mymimosa

request your mimosa growathon starter kit below (sorry UK customers only)

contains Mimosa pudica seeds, soil disk and quick growing guide

If you are outside the UK, we can't send you the starter kit as it contains seeds!  We would be delighted if you still join the #mymimosa growathon.  Mimosa pudica seeds are easy to buy in most countries. Let us know your progress, or tweet us.

get your children involved in the growathon

It’s never too early to teach children about protocol optimization! Why not get your children involved in the growathon and investigate questions like if scratching or soaking the seeds before planting aids germination. Download our lab book layout and start training up your children in good scientific procedure!
