growing gotu kola
I ordered some plants, and received pots with a few skimpy stems and small leaves on them. (dissapointing to say the least)
I set them in a shallow dish of water and kept them moist. they put out a few rooted runners down to the water, but the plants themselves kept dying off.
I took the rootlets and buried them in the soil of the plant next to them. Everything still seemed to die back. I thought about throwing the pots out, but decided to keep the faith.
Took the pots out of the water, and just kept the soil moist.
I'm happy to say that each pot now has several small green leaves emerging!
I may be able to do this! Yippee. Since I've read that GK is a "thug", it would be a gardening disgrace not to be able to keep it alive.
