Brazilian spinach

Always running on high octane, Dr. Valdely made a fast run to the municipality market place before heading to the airport for his return flight to Manaus. His stop there was to buy some espinafre, the so-called Brazilian spinach. Val tells me that research on this plant isn't complete. The genus is Alternanthera but the question of species is still under study. He gave me a few samples, which I planted. Attached image.

It's interesting to read about all these different things.
