Autumn's Garden

ghost plant (Buat cao)

Mother in law gave us this plant. It's supposed to keep spirits away. Old Wives tale.

Some elderly Chinese believe 3 types of plants keep spirits away, one of which is this.

The other popular "ghost" plant is the pomegranate. Almost every house in my neighbourhood has a pomegranate.
