hi, i've heard this is an aquatic plant, but then i've also heard it should only be submerged for no longer than a few days. so what's the best growing conditions? should i just sit it in a tray of water like the other swamp plants?
Hi all, I would like to know more on the alternanthera purple knight . I am curious because last year my dog was getting ready to go into labour with her puppy's and she was pacing the garden, looking a bit beside herself when she started eating the small white flowers off this plant. I was instantly concerned and stopped her from consuming more than the two she had already eaten. I thought it best at the time to know what she had eaten, so I tried some. I put a flower in my mouth and chewed it a little, spitting out the hard pulp and juice and only swallowing a residual amount. I felt high and buzzy with a terrible prickly feeling in my mouth and throat, this lasted for hours. My dog survived and had a trouble free birth, I survived and want to know more . It is also commonly known as joyweed, wonder why? Anybody else had experiences with this sp. of alternanthera?
