    Finally Found It

    I had been looking for this plant for a while. I lived in SE Asia and loved using this plant as a shade tolerant groundcover but since moving back to the US it has been hard for me to find. The plant I received from Sow Exotic was in good condition with multiple stems and a small runner as well. I look forward to letting this plant take over a patch of my Food Forest.
