My second attempt in growing xiao bai cai at home succeeded. The first round was not very successful as these vegetables need plenty of sunlight and water. They must be grown in a brightly lighted place preferably with sun shining directly at them. They need a lot of water also. I grew 2 pots of these over a period of about 2 months. There is a sense of satisfaction when you harvest them. Unfortunately, my 2 pots of vegetables only yielded a small plate of fried vegetables. It is only then, that you realise how much time and effort it is needed to grow vegetables that we pick up effortlessly from the supermarket everyday and how much we take for granted the efforts of the farmers that grow these vegetables for our consumption.
