Mimosa pudica is an angiosperm. This means that it is a flowering seed plant. Its seeds are usually dispersed by wind or animals. In order for it to create seeds, it must be pollinated. Pollination can occur by wind or other methods of transfer of pollen. Because angiosperms have flowers, they can attract insects and animals as pollinators.
 M. pudica is a “perennial” meaning it can live longer than two years (Ombrello). However, it is sometimes cultivated as if it were an annual (Ombrello).
