About Shameplant Plants: Shameplant (Chui mui) or Mimosa are perennial flowering plants. When we touch any part of this plant, this plant withers (leaves close) for some time, that’s why plants are known as Mimosa or Chui Mui. Mimosa plants are the best flowering plants in the family of Fabaceae. The scientific name is Mimosa pudica, and it belongs to the Fabaceae family.
How to Plant Seeds at Home: We have two methods to plant shame plants (Chui Mui) at home: seeds and cutting. In this post, we will know both methods. Chui Mui seeds are tiny and brown in colour (size 1 to 2 mm long) with a round shape. Seeds are easily available at local nurseries or online stores.
Planting Seeds & Making Soil Potting: Most seeds die before germination, so always plant more seeds (3 or 4 out of 20 seeds germinate). To make a soil mixture, take out well-drained garden soil (50%), cow dung (30%), and perlite (20%). Mix it well.
- If you have 20 or more seeds, take out the large flowerpot; otherwise, a small pot.
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot.
- Push the soil mixture with your hand (removed soil air).
- Please take out the seeds and spray them on the soil.
- Cover the seeds with soil (1-inch soil layer).
- Give water properly and place the flowerpot into the shaded area.
Within 20 to 25 days, germination starts from the seeds, and new leaves and 2 to 3 branches appear from the seeds. Sometimes germination takes lots of time, so be patient. If germinated plants grow up to 7 to 8 inches, it’s time to transplant them with a separate flowerpot or ground site.
Remember while planting: USDA hardiness zone should be 4-10. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use a ceramic flowerpot. Distance between the seeds should be 1 to 2 inches and cutting 6 to 8 inches.
Transplantation: For transplantation, remove all the plants from the old flowerpots and take out garden soil with vermicompost, cow dung, and perlite. Mix it well.
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot.
- Take out the plants.
- Dig a-holes (3 to 4 inches deep) and put the plants into those holes.
- Cover the rooting system with the soil and give some water.
- Keep the plants in full sunlight.
Within 10 to 15 days, new leaves start from the seeds. Sometimes plants take more time to sprout new leaves.
How to Plant Cutting: Cutting the head of stems (4 to 5 inches) and take the same soil potting with a flowerpot. Plant all the cutting into the soil and place the flowerpot in full sunlight.
Best Caring Tips :
- Watering: Do not give much water or before watering, check the top layer of soil potting. Always maintain moisture in the soil potting.
- Temperature: For the best result, keep the plants in full sunlight or shaded area (at least 5 hours). Keep the plants in full sunlight during the winter season, and morning sunlight gives the best result.
- Best Compost: Do not give NPK fertilizer; you can provide decomposed cow dung. Fertilize the plants after 30 to 45 days.
Flowering Season: Within 5 to 8 months of the plantation, Flowers start blooming on the plants, and these flowers are round in shape (like a ball shape). Flowers are purple, white, yellow, and blue, and flower colours depend on the variety. Over time, flowers grow up to 2 to 3 inches.
