Medicinal porch plants: gotu kola and jiaogulan. Both are super easy-to-grow medicinal gems. Gotu kola (heart-shaped leaves in the rear) is an adaptogen, nervine and helps with focus and mental clarity. Jiaogulan (star-shaped leaf) is also an adaptogen and has many overlapping qualities with ginseng. (Gotu kola - Centella asiatica // Jiaogulan - Gynostemma pentaphyllum).
