VIRGINIA , QLD, Australia
Purchased this from a couple just recently. Still to see how it goes.
WEST FOOTSCRAY, VIC, Australia
Smells pungent, leaves flavour rice, does not flower for me but I like seeds from the shop too.
FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
Bought off ebay a few months ago as seedling. I planted in pot and put in green house. Doing ok.
GORDON, NSW, Australia
great grower, have divided the plant. very hardy. Fine in a heavy clay soil.Few years on and this plant is close to feral make sure you contain it! Thinking about replacing all plates in the house and using the leaves to save washing up!
Eagleby, QLD, Australia
Grows extremely well in pot. use leaves as i need them. Gets watered with everything else and also fertilized with everything else.
Kealba, VIC, Australia
