This Gotu Kola is a common salad green used widely in Sri Lankan cuisine. Though related to Ayurvedic Gotu Kola / Brahmi, it has not been studied for medicinal uses and we are not aware of any claims of medicinal use for this species.

Sri Lankan Salad Gotu Kola is a very prolific, ground cover plant with large, crisp, edible leaves. Grown in a partly shady, moist soil, this Gotu Kola will spread rapidly and tolerates foot traffic as well.

We highly enjoy this greens in salads. They are easy to pick and easy to eat. Lots of recipes are also available from Sri Lankan cooks on YouTube.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Gotu Kola thrives in moist areas and is often found near rivers. It also requires filtered light or dappled shade. It does root as it trails along wet surfaces, and it can also be grown in hanging baskets for a beautiful display.
