Did you know that this plant can grow another plant just by a sinngle leaf  look at the leaf it has little leaf like structure that also has root system under it. Thats what I am saying that you can multiple the plant just by planting its leaf on the ground and that is why it is called the Miracle Plant. There are lots of this in our school and most of the kids are really amazed about the leaf. This one is considered to be a herbal plant since it has components for :

  • Antiseptic
  • Counter Irritant against insect bites. 
  • use to cure diarrhea( a tea from a boiled leaf is enough)

If this plant pocess good quality for medicine then why does I dont hear any news about  the benefits of this plant. And its easy to populate this since it just take 1 leaf.
