Today I am sharing the story of a plant that was propogated from a single stem and that is well flourished today and covers a significant portion of our garden under the hedges. This plant is the Wandering Jew. I am simply amazed by the growing speed of this plant. Its been only few months that we planted few of the stem cuttings under the hedges to cover the shabby looking soil and whoooaaa its already filled and how... Infact this is slowely trying to cover the grass area and so we have to get it cut on a regular basis.
And not only these flourish outdoors but when placed in the water inside the house, these still look fresh and growing after days.

I had planted this in my native home long back ago. After a while it disappeared becoz the local gardner thought it was a kind of weed. Nowadays I see it in hanging baskets in most of the houses..ReplyDelete
with its growing tendency it makes for beautiful fully bloomed hanging baskets.... you just need a few cuttings and you can get these back fully grown in your native place.
