|11. Medicinal Plant Dukung Anak (Phyllanthus niruri)|
The medicinal plant in the above picture is Phyllanthus niruri. Common name is Stonebreaker or Seed Under Leaf. The Malay name "Dukung Anak" means "carrying the child".
You name it, they have it! You don't know what interesting plants they have. Even if not buying, it will be a great learning experience anyway.
What I learnt here:
1) How to be thick skin and improve my bargaining skills
2) Learn how to care for a specific plant by asking the vendors
3) Practice my plant selection skills and learn from mistakes made
4) What are the varieties/cultivars/species of different plants currently available
5) Learn about alternative plant care products e.g. fertilizers, boosters, potting mix.
