Summer 2011: I love love love asian greens and my friend John gave me a few cuttings.


These are the EASIEST thingin the world to grow from cuttings (and I might be suggesting easier than mint!). They are great! And the folliage is pretty so you can't complain on any front! Can't wait for them to be big enough to harvest!!


They do like the water though and will get very sad and doopy when they are thirsty. Bounce back straight away though.

Nice to eat when stir fried with sambal. Suppose to be easy to grow, so far I'm having little success.

Must at least kept moist, best results grown in water.

Have since added more cuttings in pot and some placed some in water on the kitchen bench by the window. Since has seen some nice little roots coming out from some cuttings...must be doing something right :)
