Trimmed the plant until the plant is left with 2 leaves. I planted it in a small pot of soil.

congratulations , this plant is growing very well, it has the correct home and correct conditions, I grow mine in a pot of soil and does okay, my son has a 2 and a half acre farm and grows it around his dam, it loves water and has found the right environment also.

Ps this plant produces runners and will fill up the space you have allowed.
I love seeing success stories.

Nice! I am thinking of cutting off the two smaller stem growing from the side and transfer them to another DIY hydroponic containers.

Same! I love reading successful stories but at the same time I am very jealous.. XD

Nice growing, I would keep the 2 smaller stems on the same plant for them to grow bigger.

Yes! My neighbours are also planting alot of herbs and plants. It is so exciting to see them grow. We grew some vegetables on the soil bed but their growth were very slow and there were many eggs under the leaves. Even my dad's kaffir lime plant have alot of white stuff on the leaves.....

I scatter some of these neem cake around the plant and it works! The leaves are improving!

I really envy people living in houses with huge garden or backyard..... At least there are walls and fences to protect their plants from being stolen. Our pandan leaves and banana leaves are always being stolen. Recently, a pot of orchid went missing too. =_=

The growth is quite significant, not too sure when you can do cutting but you can try to make laksa first. :)/>

I see! I scatter around the plant and mix them with a small shovel.

Perhaps we should get those fake camera from mustafa and scare those thieves away!

I add the laksa leaves into porridge, fried rice, spaghetti, soups......etc. Only get to eat Laksa at home once in a blue moon. The more we nip, the better they branch out and grow.

Your laksa plants are tall enough to take cuttings and root in water.

Thanks Grace! I will nip some leaves off for laksa and also cut the stem to regrow. The leaves appear bigger than the original laksa leaves which I bought from Giant.
