Ooooo!!!!!!
I din know that!

Thanks for lettin me know ya!

wllm33 - most nurseries have if you're plannin to buy a pot.
Usually ard $6-$8/pot. no more den $12.
I've been seeing them at wet mkt as well.

Basically there's the common type and there's the very expensive long mulberry type.. but according to my ah gong... both leaves same same, silk caterpillars eat.

I'll not recommend that you use the leaves immediately as most commercial ones might have pesticides tat WILL affect shrimps.
Leave it for 1 mth or so before you use the leaves.

word of advise...

Dun plant into the ground if possible.

The roots can get pretty invasive and hard to remove.
