Air Potato


This post is for a CV friend before his building disappears under the foliage. (So cool your jets Dave.)

The leaves are so handsome, heart shaped,  BUT Palm Beach County Code - Article 14.D  requires removal of air potato from all developed properties countywide (also Old World climbing fern).
Removal required by Jan 1, 2004

  1. But do you get any potatoes?

  2. It was imported for cattle feed 'potatoes', each one that falls to the ground grows another plant. Google it ok.
    Miles of mature trees on Rt 60 are covered in it - otherworldly. (not WPB)

  3. "Air potato has been used as a folk remedy to treat conjunctivitis, diarrhea and dysentery, among other ailments."

    If I ever get roped or tricked into Ballantes again I will remember these special "yams".

    Where is Elaine when we need her?
