Bandicoot Berry

Leea Indica commonly called Bandicoot Berry originated in Asia and Australia. It has green foliage and is the sister of Leea Coccinea ‘Rubra’, which has similar traits.

Leea Indica is grown mainly for its exotic foliage; each leaf is divided into numerous pointed leaflets. When in bloom, green berries appear, which later turn brown.

Not many people knew of this plant and for the longest while it was being confused with the Ficus.

This lovely potted house plant is also used in Asia as a medicinal plant.

For best results, feed with Miracle Gro All Purpose Plant Food once every 2 weeks.

Until next week, Happy Gardening.
