It is usually staked or trellised, and cultivated in a spot that gets some shade. Propagated by cuttings, it is a cut and come again plant that needs about 50 to 70 days of growth before you start harvesting leaves.
The dark green, triangular shaped leaves of the Bologi, are usually steamed and eaten as a vegetable.
Bologi is not the same plant as “Broad Bologi” grown in the south of Florida (USA). That is actually Basella alba.
