Benih Kacang Botol yang ada pada Olive  sizenya lebih besar dan lebih mature (more brown color) berbanding dengan benih kacang botol yang Olive beli dari luar. Benih kacang botol ini adalah hasil tanaman mak, thanks to her

Kucai Seeds yang ada pada Olive sangat fresh, baru diharvest last weekend. Ditanam oleh mak Olive jugak.

Pokok Ulam Raja dah tak payah ditanam oleh Olive, sebab ianya boleh tumbuh sendiri..banyak benih fresh yang jatuh sendiri dan tumbuh balik. Nice kan.
Benih Hempedu baru start diharvest. Pokok herb ni memang bermanfaat kepada kita. Kalau kat rumah Olive, we used to dry the whole plant, blender and put in gelatin capsule & store in fridge. Very convenient to be used. Apabila rasa badan panas / fever, dry mouth atau rasa nak sakit dah...memang we automatic telan 3-5 capsules.  It works. Boleh kurangkan pengambilan panadol.

Terung Bulat pemberian labmate...he tanam sendiri tao...racun free. Cantik purple color tu.
Kacang Panjang Renek hasil penanaman labmate i jugak..rajin dia..subur kan

Trust me...You can also grow ginseng!

It is really fun to grow ginseng jawa! You can really harvest the ginseng look alike root besides the leaves that we can eat as vegetable. So Amzaing!

Well, from the appearance, the roots look exactly the same as the ginseng that sell in the store. However, ginseng jawa root do not possess strong smell and taste  like those ginseng selling in the store. Plenty of research papers have reported on the benefit of ginseng jawa (try google ya).

However, to get the ginseng look alike root, you need to grow the plant from the seeds. 

If you are only interested with the leaves, then you may try to grow it from cuttings. Super easy to grow.

Sometimes i am too busy and tak sempat to harvest the leaves. Eventually the plants start to bloom and bear seeds. The mature seeds will pop out and from there you will have a lot of baby ginseng jawa plants that will surprise you with ginseng root at the end. Fun isn't it?

Ginseng Jawa & kangkong sharing the same bed
The pink flower that will turned into seed pod eventually
Beautiful green harvest...
Very versatile..can be stir fry or added into spagetti or into soup
Tadaaaaaaaaaaa...there come the ginseng jawa roots! it really surprise me!! It is so fun to pull out a plant and u see the ginseng root immediatly after that.
These ginseng jawa plants actually shared the pots with my adenium plants that i seldom water them. I am reallly impress by the size of the root as the ginseng jawa plants are stil small relatively.

Even the baby plants also have ginseng look like root...omg! i am so happy!

Tadaaaaaaaaa.........after cleaning... i dried them 1st. Because i wanna see how much they will shrink ...

Forget to take a proper picture of ginseng jawa roots after drying. It took me more than a week to dry the root. I arranged the bigger roots into a nicer box and gave to my mom as CNY gift :-)..hehe...while the smaller and broken roots were kept inside the  plastic bag (unpresentable haha). i cooked a chicken soup with all of the above ingrediants....I just put in whatever i have in the fridge...The soup tasted good and sweet but there is No ginseng taste at all. If you are cooking this soup using the store bought ginseng, you already can smell ginseng everywhere around the house. Next time, i will cook the fresh root straight, save the time and trouble for drying...

Gorgeous Mrs Garfield

I get to know the name of this gorgeous Hippeastrum as “Mrs Garfield” through Mr. Google. Thanks to him. 

'Mrs. Garfield'? ?  The name is really weird! The flower definitely does not look like the Garfield cat at all right?

Hippeastrum 'Mrs. Garfield' has been a favourite of mine, the bloom is so lovely. The soft white 6 petals flower looks like a star, and elegantly reticulated with pink veins.

Hippeastrum 'Mrs. Garfield' is easy to be recognised through it broad leaves centred with a white stripe down the middle of each leaf.

This type of hippeastrum is pretty common in Malaysia. Mr. Google said it has been existence in UK since 18th century. Wow!

I planted the bulb on July 2015 & it bloom 3 months later. So soon and I didn’t expect the bloom.  It really surprised me!
