Jiao-gu-lan, Japanese (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) potted vine, organic

(13 customer reviews)

$8.50$51.00

Family:  Cucurbit (Cucurbitaceae)

Hardy to zone 7 to 12, commonly grown as a potted plant and brought in for the winter.

(Immortality, Amachazu, Jiao-gu-lan)  Herbaceous or perennial dioecious vine native to China, Tibet, Japan and Southeast Asia, the blue-green leaves of this perennial vine are commonly made into tea. Does well in pots and is commonly kept in a light window. Outdoors, a thick mulch will assist these beauties in surviving harsh winters, or you can overwinter them indoors (they grow!) or in a cold greenhouse to add some protection.  Trellis.  Traditional usage:  adaptogen and life extension.  To explain one of the gallery images–it is a specialized jiao-gu-lan bed in a greenhouse, with deep, rich soil surrounded by rocks.  You can see the jiao-gu-lan roots planted to the perimeter of the bed.  The vines (male and female) will drape over the sides and fruit in season.  r

  1. Question

    Ada Berry (verified owner)

    Hi Richo,
    My Jiao gu lan plants do very well indoors for a few months and then they don’t. One big plant died completely, I thought, and then started growing again. Can you give me some helpful hints on how often to water, cloth pots, plastic pots, direct sun or lower light, fertilizer etc? I know I’m doing something wrong. Anything you could help me with would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

      Hello Ada, When I first started growing Jiao-gu-lan I was told that it was a shade lover and needed deep, rich soils. So I put it in the shade and it was just as you describe: good for awhile then sickly. I noticed that the roots actually run just sub-surface and parallel with the soil surface, so I started to question the “deep soil” part of the directions. Actually I think the whole directions I got were incorrect. These days I give it plenty of light and a shallow, rich soil. It tends to prefer to crawl and sprawl not climb. It is hard to grow. A lot of people have trouble with it. I had huge success this year with cuttings of female plants under lights and gave all but three of them away to the shippers. Some people were happy anyway.

  2. Question

    Susan Eberhard

    Regarding -Jiaogulan- -Gynostemma pentaphyllum, I thought it was supposed to be 7 leaf, but yours looks like 5? Would I need a male and a female? Do you get that automatically when you order 3? Shipping to Canada, N5Y 2Y5, will cost how much? Thanks

      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for contacting. It is true, we cannot ship plants to Canada. Pentaphyllum is the species name for the plant and it means “5-leaved” so not sure where the 7-leaved expectation comes from except that sometimes the plant does make 7-lobed leaves. Anyway this doesn’t really have anything to do with concerns over identity or the medicinal activity. Yes, you are right, these are dioecious, so a male and female are required. Any order of 3 plants is likely to have both sexes, and seeds give about 50/50m male and female. I’ll try to e-mail you next time we get a seed harvest. I’m not sure about your shipping cost question but if you drop the item into your shopping cart you can assess shipping costs prior to finalization. All the best, richo

      hi melissa, thanks for contacting. These are at about 4 inches tall right now and planted in 5-inch deep pots. Bu the time they are shipped, they may be longer, or we may trim them back prior to shipment. Plant size really shouldn’t be a determining factor–we simply aim to get you a good starter plant–potted up to a gallon on receipt and kept in the right conditions, the size will change dramatically within 3 weeks. richo

    Learning a lot about this plant – I’m on the front range in Colorado (5b-6a) – It’s a zone 7-11 plant so when it gets down to 10degrees will the plant die outright? Im planning on mulching it and keeping my fingers crossed it will come back for the second year. And it didn’t get very big this first year but it was happy to spread and climb my 6′ trellis about a foot. I harvested some leafy vines today – careful not to take any outta the ground that may have started rooting but I am wondering – before I chop them up and put some on my drying rack or in a tincture jar – should I try to propagate them with cuttings so I can see if I can get it going inside? Any tips? Also, do you know why isn’t this plant more commonly available commerically? It seems like a big winner for people who enjoy drinking tea and apparently the therapeutic properties are legion… Regardless of its medicinal value, it’s an intrinsically special plant. Thank you for the plants Richo!

      hi james, thanks for the well written communication. I do think deep mulches help immensely with the overwintering of this plant. The aerial parts are the part used for tea and tincture. They are good for that but difficult to root. Use the running rhizomes to make more plants. Any 6-inch section can be removed and put into a new pot, just sub-surface, and will sprout. Once you dig in there you’ll see plenty of roots i expect. richo

      I put some sections on a new pot, almost just in contact with the soil as Richo said. The only difference is it is held in place with a small fork of wire or an semi-open paper clip.. I only separate this section from the mother plant when you notice that it is growing and already has roots.

      Hello Michell,
      Thanks for contacting! Jiao-gu-lan plants are still in stock. Yes, they are dioecious, meaning male plants and female plants. For herbal use, one does not require both sexes–either one will do. For the purpose of making seeds, you need both male and female plants. Seed production is rather difficult with this species, which is typical to plants that reproduce readily from running rhizomes/stolons. We don’t sell sexed individuals, its pot luck, suggest getting 3 if you want to assure both male and female. Richo

    Great as a potted plant!

    This healthy plant arrived with others. I live in northern MN (zone 3) with lots of deer, voles, slugs…so didn’t even think of planting it outside. It makes an incredibly beautiful potted plant, growing up a trellis. I need to regularly harvest and use the foliage in tea to keep it from taking over the world. It seems to overwinter well inside, too. Richo always delivers great plants!

      Hi Tristan,
      You’re one or two zones too cold for jiao-gu-lan to overwinter. The mulch idea might be good, I can’t really say, I overwinter mine in beds without mulch in an unheated greenhouse and they come back fine in the spring.

      I’m in Scotland and I’ve had to grow it indoors for years. Goes dormant for many months here then always comes back in April/May. I grow it indoors now whereas many years ago I grew it outdoors because I was living in California back then. Soon I’ll move to a more temperate country so I can go back to growing medicinal plants outdoors again.

      Much love, stay safe.

    This has overwintered well in my unheated greenhouse. Last year was cold enough to kill the Hill’s Hardy rosemary there, around -15F, but this plant was fine. It is increasing and spreading by rooting. I had plants overwinter with snow cover outside, but the voles were quite fond of it. ( The chickens love it as a green too!)

    I searched everywhere for a source of organic Jiao-gu-lan. I have often been offered a healing tea from this herb when I am in Temples in China. I found these and ordered three. The price was so reasonable that I was sure they would be tiny barely rooted cuttings. Much to my surprise, I promptly received three beautiful balls of vigorously rooted plants in great condition. Thank you ever so much. I will so enjoy drinking tea next summer.

      Right, my approach to this is usually to pull out old mulch from around the plant and replace with sand, which pillbugs do not like. As for deer, they can be devastating, and most of the traditional approaches (caging, fencing, dogs) are quite labor-intensive. A mixed planting with plenty of Mediterraneans in there can help.

      Sorry, we haven’t had it together enough to separate the plants into male and female. We probably will have seed coming on so if you click on the waitlist for seeds then you’ll get an e-mail when seeds are available, and you can start them from seed, and then you’ll be sure to have both males and females. Otherwise maybe order 3 plants and go for pot luck, you may get both sexes. The plants flower very late in the year so you can usually sex them in the fall of the first or second year. r

      Hi Richo! 3rd or 4th season since purchase of 3 plants from Strictly Medicinal. All the plants I have ordered always arrive in fantastic condition. The packing really protects. Those three plants have thoroughly naturalized to my yard in zone 7B Baltimore Maryland. It is coming up everywhere! I harvested it moderately hard throughout the last season – necessary to contain it, but its nice when stuff is so plentiful you can harvest liberally and not be concerned about plant taking over. If I don’t like where it’s growing – I harvest it. There was enough to get me through the winter and plenty to share! Do you know if deer or other woodland animals like it? Rabbits don’t bother it. Slugs love it.

      hi jenny, they are easy to germinate in a cool greenhouse. Most growers fail with these because they cook them–I’d keep around 65 degrees F for decent germ. As with many plants that propagate readily from running rhizomes, the plant is a scanty seed producer (usually one or two seeds per berry) and given the very late maturation, most growers find they freeze out before berry production. In other words, my advice is to get a plant and propagate off of that–much easier. richo

      My backyard in Central North Carolina has much shade with Pecan Trees. If I mulch and use raised beds could this Jiao gu lan survive the winter? Much rain here also, like almost 60 inches a year. But the sun is shinning mostly.

      I received my plants last week. I live in Phoenix AZ, can these be planted in the shade where they only get a couple of hours of sun per day? What’s ideal in my hot climate?

      hi rebecca, i do think these need to be planted in the shade in phoenix. they appreciate a rich, moist soil and a trellis. A deep coir mulch will help keep the roots cool. r

      Hey I got one of these from you back in 2020 and it’s overwintered for 2 years in a row in my USDA zone 5 garden. I haven’t made any effort to shelter it at all. It’s a great plant and makes excellent tea. I’ve also been keeping it as a houseplant.

      Received 3 plants and put them out in beds. All 3 rooted and are spreading. Nice! My Rehmannia I received is taking off well too. Thank you Richo

      Since Jiagolan produces rhizome, can you buy only one seedling plant (e g male) and divide it till you get male and female plants?
      In otherwords, Can a female sexes emerge from dividing a male plant?

      hello morph, thanks for staying in touch. for most growers it is a moot point to try to obtain seeds, because the induction period is very lengthy–you would still have to have unfrozen conditions in November. Anyhow, no, once a male always a male, regardless of division. richo
