    Is this similar to Morning Glory?

    I find your leaves infested with something… Tiny holes are visible, otherwise they look healthy. How are you related to one of us Filipinos? 🙂 you might want to consider adobong kangkong, or just put on boiling water for around 30 seconds and eat with bagoong.

    My mother in law brought some over to make sinigang or something. She threw the excess out in my garden bed to compost (I guess). I picked one out and stuck it in a plastic water bottle with some tap water. 3 days later I have roots growing all along the stem.

    I am thinking about growing it in a 2L soda bottle of water with some worm castings mixed in to add nutrients.

    Yes, you can use KANGKONG as a soup or used as SALAD. For SALAD, blanch or STEAM kangkong, YOU can't eat raw.

    @Stella Astute sorry you are wrong because I lived in the Philippines and Kangkung is used in soups and I loved it!

  • Yana Samir 1 year ago

    Can you simply grow it in a pot without holes so there's always water at the bottom?

  • Adolfo Pedregosa 1 year ago

    adobo kang kong. Famous in the Philippines.

  • Miyahs Xstitch 1 year ago

    Actually, you can make a soup out of these. It's called Canh chua rau muon. Good stuff

  • Stella Astute 1 year ago

    He pronounced it wrongly haha. And it is best for stir fry mostly not for soup or salad :P

    In the wild it actually grows at the edges of streams and ponds and spreads out onto the water – it's hollow stems allow it to float. I used to grow it in my fish tank, where it helps absorb nitrates and ammonia and keep the fish happy. You can also grow it in a fish tank or garden pond, but don't eat the bits that are on the water as they may have water snails and parasites on them. You can eat the bits that trail out onto dry land from the pond.

    Great video! We traveled around Vietnam and we absolutely adored this plant! Were from Belgium, so I'm trying this one out myself this year! :-)

    I grew them in my garden last year from seed in Georgia. It took a while but most of the seeds did germinate and I had a lot of healthy plants. Unfortunately, the plants die at the first sign of frost. I will plant both Kang Kong and Water Crest this year and transfer it indoor for the winter. A hard lesson but one that I learn and will remember not to do again.

    We called it KangKong in the Philippines(TAGALOG).Here in Aruba I used it in my soup(fish) or in my sinigang(sour soup) together with other vegetables,Also I sauteed it in cooking oil with garlic,onions,soy sauce and vinegar (adobong kangkong).Ung choy they called it here by the Chinese or just swamp cabbage or water spinach.

    Does it have a lot of gel in the leaves or the stems?

  • Brian Smith 1 year ago

    We simply throw some leaves on their stems into a bucket of water and it grows like crazy all summer long. Just make sure there's plenty of water. We don't even use dirt! Just put it in water. It grows. Also, our cat LOVES it!!! He'll eat it 'til he pukes!
