Pennywort A.K.A Pegaga In Da House......


This edible species of pennywort was sowed from cuttings of leftover bunch we bought at the fresh market....Definitely bugs' favourite source of food compared to the other species we have in the garden...We could hardly see the leaves on this plant for a long time because it would disappear from your sight so fast when it managed to develop some leaves......This goes on until we planted some basil in the same pot,then it stops disappearing...:)


This is another edible species of pennywort given by my friend....Not bugs' favourite obviously, because we did not face the same problem as we faced with the other species. This is also delicious tastewise, but i don't really like the texture of the leaves compared to the other one because it's kinda waxy/too glossy...But in my experience,this is easier to grow compared to the other one....Maybe the soil is not suitable to grow the other species, because as far as i know, pennywort/pegaga is not hard to grow...:)
