Can be grown as an indoors plant in cooler climates, but it will be less in size.Pretty puff-ball flowers of pink and fern-like leaves that quickly fold once touched: the sensitive plant is a wonder of the plant world. A tender perennial that becomes semi-woody in frost-free regions, it is often short-lived and is most popularly grown as an annual.The leaves are bright green to gray-green in color and are shaped like a four-fingered hand. Each of these lobes is densely lined with tiny leaflets. At night or whenever the foliage it touched, it quickly folds up. The leaves are held on prickly reddish brown stems that can grown upright and branch, but often are more sprawling. In the warmth of summer small pink flowers that look like pompons appear. They become flat, brown, bristled pods that will cling to animal fur or clothing.Grow sensitive plant in full or partial sun in any well-draining soil. Tolerant of nutrient poor (rocky, lean) soils, it should be moist in the growing season and allowed to be slightly drier in the winter. If grown as an annual, it easily adapts and prospers in typical garden conditions as long as there is no frost and soil is never soggy. Grow it as a container, hanging basket or accent plant in a mixed border. Position it so that people can delight and witness in the reaction of the leaves to a touch. (source: learn2grow)
