Tickle Me Plant Giveaway Closed

What is a Tickle Me Plant?

~The plant MOVES when you Tickle It. The leaves close and the branches droop when the plant is tickled.
~ It can be grown indoors year round.
~ It sprouts in less than a week and the leaves will move when Tickled, in less than a month.
~ It produces pretty pink cotton candy like flowers.
~ The TickleMe Plant Greenhouse, Mini House and Flower Pots can be used over and over again.

How did they get started?:

"When my brother Larry and I were children, we would show our friends our TickleMe Plants and watch the looks of disbelief and excitement on their faces.
Growing TickleMe Plants from seeds was then and still is a magical experience for us. Throughout our lives, we continued to grow our own TickleMe Plants. I became a science teacher and over my 30 years of teaching have had many budding scientists experience the joy of raising their own TickleMe Plants.
Larry and I decided to form the TickleMe Plant Company, so that we could make the TickleMe Plant experience available to all people young and old. Many children (and adults) have never been exposed to the joy and importance of plants. Watching a plant grow and move can be an unforgettable experience. We don’t want children and those young at heart, to lose “touch” with our living world. What better adventure than to raise their own TickleMe Plant from seed? A great experience for everyone! Growing a TickleMe Plant is the perfect gift for someone who wants to share their love of nature and gardening!?

Wow. That's the makahiya (maka=tends to be, hiya=shy). That's what it's called in the Philippines, didn't think I'd see it here. I think it's considered a weed back there :P I still liked playing with it though.
