- improve blood circulation
- lower uric acid
- reduce body "heat"
- and a good source of fibre
I didn't count, but there could be thousands of young seedlings. Not all will survive to maturity in such tight space, so we can imagine the healthiest will survive. However we can also view in a different perspective, some simply surrender and die allowing the better ones to prolong their legacy.
One Ulam Raja would need at least a foot square to grow to maturity.

The moment I saw seedlings appeared around the old ulam raja, I scooped a few and transplanted at the far end of our garden. As ground cover, to protect the young seedlings, I placed palm leaves which had been cut into smaller pieces. That was about one month ago. The seedlings had grown to about a foot and a half, healthy looking without excessive competition as in the cluster of self seeds.

A simple plant that will grow and self seed at will, therefore we should not worry about germinating them.
