This plant is very popular in South East Asia. Chinese people call it “HE LAN DO” (pronounced: che-lan-do), which means “HOLLAND”! This name refers to the Dutch traders from the VOC (United East Indies Company) who, in the 17th century brought ideas to growers in the region. Affilla Cress is a vigorous grower. Outside the refrigerator it will grow at least ½ inch a day. It has a distinctive and decorative shape allowing it to be used for very creative applications.
