Gardeners' Notes:

Positive 2QandLearn On Jul 14, 2014, 2QandLearn from Menifee, CA (Zone 9a) wrote:

I enjoy this plant's ease of sowing (every leaf will grow into a plant), and, its beautiful green color, as I have it growing where it gets some shade. Plus, I don't allow for it to go too long without water. To me a stressed plant is an unhappy plant, and, they make me unhappy! Besides, I just *like* greens!

I've experienced a small negative quality of this easy and really friendly plant. Propagation is soooo... easy. Every single tiny bit of it roots where ever it drops. I have a pebble path so one can think what has happened.

I have this plant growing in my garden. Also have several pots that have weathered winter and hale storms. Only to come back full and beautiful. Hard to kill and anywhere it drops will grow!!!
