Meet and Greet: The Mickey Mouse Plant

     The first time I saw this plant, it was being sold in make-shift stores along the way to Eden Nature Park in Davao. At first sight,  I was amused. How cam a plant be so cute? I find out it is commonly called the Mickey Mouse Plant for obvious reasons. It is often used as a centerpiece. But is is not only for decoration as its roots, fruits and leaves have medicinal uses from skin diseases to cough and cold. Check it out here but don't laugh!

      To me it is a beautiful plant with a slight retro vibe which I like for home decoration. =-) Never mind the silly names.
