: Hi Newt,
: Thank you very much! I did visit the site you have mentioned, and thanks a bunch for that.

: I already have it in a pot, which I bought at a store. Does that mean it does'nt require any fertilizer of any kind ? Also, I have used the leaves once, after which I put in some seeds, which have just started to grow. I was also wondering how often I should water this plant. Info about this would be appreciated. Thanks for your reply once again. - Qqueen

Hi Qqueen,
You are so welcome! With a plant that grows so quickly, I would suggest that you don't need to fertilize. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Just stick your finger in to the first knuckle, and if it's dry, water. You could add milk to the watering can. Yup, the stuff we put in coffee. Just add a tablespoon or so to the watering can or when the milk container is empty, fill with water and use that. It's great for houseplants as well, with calcium and minerals. You can do a search at and put in quotes with a plus sign like this: "milk" + "houseplant".
