Jiaogulan is a chinese miracle plant......well now, all plants are miracle plants....we just don´t know their secrets. This plant is very easy to grow. It is a small fast growing vine. I have three large ones in pots; I put them inside when it is freezing in the winter. I you cut of a piece, you can make many new plants easily. You can put them in salads, soup or tea......or just munch them up.....tastes good.
