My Potted Laman

~ a hanging potted  'ginseng Jepun'
common name       :  Ginseng Jepun/Akar Som Jawa
botanical name  :  Talinum Paniculatum Gaerth

Said to be a wild plant , now it has become a household potted plant and its known for its medicinal properties both from the roots and leaves - to treat cough/asthma, and to reduce swelling of abscess,
Can be eaten either fresh as 'ulam'/salad  with sambal belacan or as a fried/boiled vegetable dish
