How to care for your Sensitive Plant
Use these instructions to care for a Sensitive Plant. This guide will tell you how to water a Sensitive Plant; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your sensitive plant does best in bright, direct sunlight. Give it as much light as possible, preferably from a south or west window.
Water your sensitive plant when 50% of the soil volume is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Sensitive Plants require high humidity to look their best. They will thrive in steamy bathrooms. You can also mist your plant often or add a humidifier nearby.
The sensitive plant prefers an average room temperature between 65-75°F.
Growth of the Sensitive Plant can be enhanced with a high-potassium liquid fertilizer diluted to about half strength with water. Fertilize once a month during the growing season of spring and summer.
The Sensitive Plant is considered toxic to both humans and animals when ingested.
Prune your plant regularly to keep it full and prevent it from becoming leggy. You can prune your plant any time of the year.
