I found this growing by my porch in the shade. Thanks to the name that plant forum i know what it is. I was considering moving this to the side of my trailer but then was wondering about it growing under trailer and causing problems down the road. I'm just looking for advice on if it would be safe to move to the side of the trailer next to the skirting...underneath the trailer is just dirt.

Not sure what you mean by "safe?" Since you posted this on the weed forum, you seem to realize that most gardeners find this plant way too aggressive, a weed, formally designated as a noxious invasive in many areas.

Basically i wanted to know if it would spread underneath the trailer or only where it could get light. I've since decided against the idea jus cus i read sooo many posts as to how hard it is to kill if i ever wanna put something else there.

It took me six years to get rid of this plant in my garden. Every little piece of root will make a new plant, so if you DO decide to turf it, make sure to sift through and get all the bits of root.
