Gotu Kola

Used in Sri Lankan cuisine and as a herbal remedy for various skin conditions and as a "brain tonic" to improve memory. Gotu Kola is also sometime referred to as "Arthritis plant". It often confused with Pennywort.  

Gotu Kola works well as a filter plant and appears to have a fairly high salt tolerance.  We have it thriving in 3000ppm (3KG of salt per 1000L).  We plan to trial it in 6000ppm.
