Fish's cheek has a flower

This is one of the species in Cambodia. It is used for salad. Some Cambodians call it 'fish's cheek' and some call it 'heart species'. I grow it in my balcony garden and I just knew that it has a flower and its flower is cute.

Easy way to grow rice paddy herb

This is rice Paddy herb.

I ever planted this plant before in a soil pot like other vegetables. It didn't grow up and died.

Then I changed the method. I grew it in water. I used a simple way, get a clean plastic bottle, put water, and put the herb in.

The herb I put in I bought from the market. 

The plastic bottle I used was a coffee bottle because it had a cover that had a hole that was easy to store the herb and to protect from mosquito to lay eggs.

After a week, it had flowers. I was very happy so I took a video of it.

This rice Paddy herb is used to cook, especially Cambodian sour soup. It is fragrant and it makes the soup fragrant too.
