Mimosa Hostilis 10 seeds
Mimosa hostilis grows very fast in warm areas (32ºC), reaching more than one and a half meters the first year and can reach a maximum of eight meters after several years. It takes a minimum of 3 years to flower and bear fruits and seeds.
Germinate the seeds:
Mimosa hostilis seeds should be soaked, with very hot water but not boiling, for at least an hour, until they swell (some may need up to 24 hours) and then make a small cut in the shell with a blade, wrap them in a moistened kitchen towel and inside a plastic bag to keep moisture. You have to keep the napkin moist at all times. When germinated, put each seed in a small pot with perlite or vermiculite and let it grow a few centimeters, then transplant it into a mixed sandy-clay organic soil.
