Vietnamese Coriander + Kangkong + Kalanchoe tubiflora…

I was shopping at 99 Ranch Market and found Rau Ram aka Vietnamese Coriander (Persicaria odorata) (bottom left photo) which I recognized as a Polygonum because of its stem & chevron on the leaf. I bought it, but didn’t intending to eat it, but to plant and add to my Polygonum collection.

Purchased Persicaria odorata Kalanchoe tubiflora in Bloom

I also bought some Kangkong aka Water Spinach (Ipomoea aquatica) to make Adobong Kang Kong and also try to plant/root the stems.

My Kalanchoe tubiflora (Chandelier Plant) (top right photo) grown from tiny plantlets 4 years ago is now blooming. I didn’t even know that these bloomed.

Nanay Playing Concentration…

My Mom is playing a concentration game on her iPad and gets excited when she matches a pair of cards. It’s so cute and I bet it’s good for her memory :)
