How To Grow 150 seed/gram. Germination is enhanced by soaking overnight in water. Sow seed 3 mm (1/8") deep in a fine mix. Maintain a growing medium temperature of 26 C (80 F) for the 15 day germination period then grow on under lights at 18 C (65 F) before hardening off and moving them outside to the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Prefers hot, humid growing conditions. Mimosa is a perennial plant that is definitely not winter hardy so plants growing outside through the summer must be moved back indoors before the first frost. This is not a bad thing as Mimosa makes a decent indoor plant as well.
