I got my plant for free at an exhibition stall of the agriculture section in 2004. He gave it to me saying that it is called vitamin plant. I later found out that this is in cultivation for its high nutritional value and is becoming popular. Attractive dark green foliage. It takes pruning well, once established. Just chew a few leaves for the needed vitamin requirements!
