Care Guidelines:

  1. Sunlight: Place Sensitive Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight for optimal growth and leaf responsiveness. Avoid harsh afternoon sun, which can cause leaf burn.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Use room temperature water to avoid shocking the plant.

  3. Temperature: Maintain moderate temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Sensitive Plant is sensitive to cold drafts and temperature extremes, so protect it from sudden temperature changes.

  4. Soil: Use well-draining, loamy soil with good aeration. A soil mix formulated for houseplants or tropicals works well for Sensitive Plant.

  5. Fertilization: Feed sparingly with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season. Avoid over-fertilization, which can lead to excessive leaf growth at the expense of sensitivity.
