Sabah Snake Grass in Putrajaya

Demand for this special plant or rather grass soared for the past few years due to  media coverage on a cancer patient supposedly cured beyond the three years and getting healthier after consuming sabah snake grass.

Two years ago, Sulong Yahaya our dearest friend  gave away one polybag of snake grass (Clinacanthus nutans).  He is very much  into herbal world.  "Pick 7 fresh leaves of sabah snake grass and chew them everyday", he prescribed.  Originally it was used to treat snake bites hence its name sabah snake grass. Nowadays it is magical in cancer prevention, detoxification and blood circulation. It also regulates kidney functions, cholesterol and blood pressure.

The plant seems to enjoy wet and shady environment. So I put sabah snake grass in the same habitat as taro and banana, and also in pots.
