Here are some dishes to share with you:
In Southern California, I have one growing in a 2 ft x 1 ft area, and it grows fast enough to provide my small family to pick weekly. It's enough for us to make a salad, and soup about 2 or 3 times a week. This plant loves moist soil, and does well in full sun, partial sun/partial shade, filtered light. In colder climate, this plant can be grown indoor by the window, but will be a bit slower growing.

To my friends in HAWAII -- Due to the strict policy of Agriculture Department in the State of Hawaii, I cannot ship this plant since I cannot guarantee the arrival of your package due to customs inspections.
Instead of shipping the live plant, Gynura Procumbens Supplement is available. It's made with 100% Gynura Procumbens, no additives. For more information please use this link: http://wendiland.com/products/gynura-procumbens-supplement
If you wish to try shipping the live plant, it is completely at your own risk. Please read on to see how it will be shipped.
Shipping live plants to Hawaii must be in bare root, or in soil-less medium. Method I ship will be using soil-less medium to keep the roots moist. Upon arrival the leaves may be wilted due to stress, but it should show signs of recovery within the week. Plants will need to be transplanted in organic soil as soon as possible, and kept in full shade until they a strong root system establishes. Once your package is shipped, it 2-3 business days to arrive, but please expect for delay due to customs. If you have any questions please contact me. Mahalo!
