Hoan Ngoc Vietnamese Herb
Hoan Ngoc (Pseuderanthemum palatiferum) is a medicinal plant that originated from Vietnam. It belongs in the Acanthaceae family. The thin, delicate leaves are edible raw or cooked. Taste is mild, and blends really smoothly. The leaves create a gelatinous consistency in a smoothie so you no longer taste the leaf texture like you would when blending Kale.
This plant grows well in ground or container. Grows to 5 FT tall. Can top off to encourage side growth for an airy shrub-like appearance.
♥How to Use♥
Leaves are eaten raw, in smoothies, or cooked in soups or stir fry. Leaves can be dried to for tea. If you have never tried this green, it is always best to try in small quantity.
♥How to Grow♥
Hoan Ngoc grows best in bright filtered light (indirect sunlight). It grows deep green leaves in full shade, and more yellow tone in part shade. It thrives in warm weather, and moist soil. Need to be protected from frost. Grows well as a house plant.
