Should be standard potting soil for houseplants. Topsoil, perlite, peat/spaghnum mix

Again, no clue. I got them as a gift and started them. There is plenty of information online. I'm hoping that it travels well. Right now they are growing in Jiffy peat pots.

Fun fact, they germinate easily in water. I put them in a bowl and added boiling water like the instructions said. That is where I stopped with the instructions. I forgot about them for a few days and when I checked again they had sprouted.

Since someone asked, pretty sure they’re subtropical, best as houseplants…. Also don’t touch :lol:

What happens if I touch?

That’s why they’re called sensitive plants, if you touch all the leaves close up.
