What are the pros? Easy to grow, takes heat
What are the cons? Minor slime, not too tasty
I got this plant years ago from a local nursery, which labeled it "cholesterol spinach." It's the easiest thing I grow, besides mustard, but it tastes (to me) a lot better! You can take a tip off, stick it in the soil, water, and it will usually survive. I use it like a spinach substitute for cooking, a lettuce substitute in hot weather.
The flavor is quite mild, just kind of green, with a tiny bit of slime, which makes it not the best choice for smoothies. But there is less slime than some of the other more heat-tolerant greens, such as Malabar spinach, Basella malabar or Basella alba.
If you don't like the flavor, maybe your chickens and ducks will (mine are spoiled and turn their beaks/bills at it). Or you can use it as green manure, growing it for fertilizer or as mulch material.
Takes full sun if watered regularly in the tropics. Also, the slugs will eat it, but not as their first choice, either. A great perennial for warm areas.
