The blooms of my Sensitive plant are cute balls of furry goodness.

@natii @valjones-hughes @cpl721 Thanks! This is growing faster now with the spring sun. The flowers only last for one day, so it's a treat to see them open.

My sensitive plant is sending out many blooms. Does anyone know how to fertilize the flowers to get seeds?

You could try using a soft paint brush or make up brush. Going from flower to flower with the brush transfers pollen the way bees do.

I will give that a try! Thanks. @Soph1e

Does it bear any fruit. Looks similar to Indian Gooseberry Tree 😊

@gauravsh6, it has a fluffy, lilac ball of a flower, but no fruit as far as I know. It's leaves are sensitive to the touch and will shrivel up for a few minutes. In warmer weather, it's a weed and spreads quickly, according to my friends in Asia😀
