Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.

require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Mimosa pudica sensitive form seeds will usually germinate in 21-30 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Soak Mimosa pudica sensitive form seeds in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately. Seeds that don't swell can be gently scarified.
(Soak for 20 minutes in almost boiling water).
