Perslane and Sweet Basil

My sweet organic basil and organic purslane is growing wonderfully. πŸ™‚

Perslane, has more Omega-3 fatty acids then fish oil. Purslane also contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B, magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron. All in all, edible purslane is a very healthy plant to add to your diet. If you ever go to an organic health grocery store of sorts in the summer months, you are likely to find perslane. πŸ™‚
The cuttings of perslane can be planted in wet soil. Make sure to snip the ends of your cuttings, and remove access leaves and branches within two to three inches from the stem’s cut.

*Place the perslane in a room temperature glass of water, for a couple of minutes before planting into well draining soil.
Perslane likes poor soil. So no need to purchase high-end expensive organic soil for this herb. πŸ™‚
Keep moist and it shall take root within a few days.
