There are plenty of web sites that grow and sell gynura Procumbens and make very interesting claims, such as cancer cure, diabetes, aids, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. The only claim I make is that my Gynura plants are cheaper than anybody else.
Gynura is not hardy at all, any frost will kill it . All claims I have seen ask you to have a gynura salad (use the leaves) daily. As you grow your plant you can propagate it by tip cuttings. Place your plants in a sunny window at room temperature when outside temperatures are below 40 degrees. In late Spring, Summer and early Fall, keep the containers outside. The leaves of the gynura Procumbens do not taste bad, just like lettuce and you can either eat them in salads or include them in soups or with any other dishes. In weeks you should be able to start taking leaves and consuming them.
When you get your gynura plants, please inspect them carefully, Gynuras attract aphids and you should always be aware of that. There are many solutions to get rid of aphids, the best I have found is Neem oil. You can get it on the Internet. Use half a teaspoon of neem and half a teaspoon of dish setergent in about a pint of water, shake well and spray the plants with this solution. The Neem has a very short half life, so mix it again within a couple of days to spray the plants again. Spray the plants 4 or 5 times, by then you will see that there are no aphids in them. You can do this again about every 2 weeks to be sure the aphids do not return. To get the 6 pack kit of this plant, propagating instructions and hormodin please visit the gynura kit page
|Gynura crepioides - Okinawa Spinach- Same as the entry above, this plant is only for cholesterol and High blood pressure.

This tree is being used in California as a decoration tree and they grow it on the front yards of homes. It grows rapidly on the first year to 20 ft. then it will slow down and at the end it will be 35 ft. tall. Siince there is no way to diferenciate these from the elongatas, the only sure way to know what you have is by looking at the tag. This tree will live about 75 years and it sprouts from the stump.
|Hybrid Poplar OP-367 Male. The everyday hybrid poplar, grows to 100 ft. and 40 ft. wide in about 10 years. I grow 1000 of these for retail sales every year. This tree outsells all other hybrids 10 to 1. If you want this tree for wood burning like most everybody, plant it 6 ft. apart. It can be cut in 5 years when the trunks will be 6 inches in diameter I picked this tree among 32 different clones as the best in the group.The tree will regenerate from the stump. Most of my trees are now about 14-16 inches tall. I always ship the tallest ones first.|

|Stevia, the sugar plant|
This plant has been used for many centuries in South America as a sweetener. It is just arriving in America, many sugar companies are against this because the use of stevia will most likely ruin their businesses. Stevia is a natural sweetener without any calories and it is safe for diabetics to use freely. The plant is stripped from its leaves, the leaves are dried and ground, then they can be added to cakes, breads, coffee or tea.
While the plant is a perennial, it is not hardy and must be taken indoors during the winter, that is why it is grown in large containers. Stevia extracts can be found in the supermarket under several different names such as Truvia, Stevia (Walmart) and others.
