What are the pros? lots of growth, minimal effort

What are the cons? none


where i stay i have very little growing space so i have to make due with planters. i planted these in a 5 gallon wet cell planter. I had 100% germination they grew about 5-6 feet tall and had some large beautiful flowers. I wanted to try the greens, but the bugs would beat me to it every time, they loved this plant so much they left the plants surrounding it alone including tomatoes cucumber many herbs and more (i don't use pesticides). Though i didn't get to try the greens from this plant i did get to enjoy more of the other plants because it was there, despite all the effort of the bugs it still produced a lot of seeds, after i cut the flower heads and finished them inside it grew another round in a short time giving me a additional round of seeds for more sharing. it also seemed to bring in some predator bugs. i would regularly see spiders and praying mantis hanging out on it. Deffinitly a great addition to any garden, i would suggest this to everyone.
