The authority on the sensitive plant, more commonly known as The TickleMe Plant is the TickleMe Plant Company. My students and I have used The TickleMe Plant Book as a source to learn how to pollinate flowers and collect seeds. We have learned how to get our TickleMe Plants to flower in the middle of winter. You can see videos, books and kits to grow your own at www.ticklemeplant.com
This is our students favorite seed planting activity as we have ordered the classroom kits, which includes the book for the last five years. Its the easiest plant to grow with kids and they love it!
