A REAL LONG RED CAT TAIL


This is my red Cat tail (Acalypha hispida) today.



Finally I find a very long cat tail.
This is a plant from my childhood.
Actually this is the second long tail that I found.
You can see the first one here, but when it turned long, I forgot to take any pictures.



Two short tails near the shoot.



It's really long, I guess it will grow longer.
There are two kind of flower I think.



I think this one is the male flower.



And this one is the female flower.



Some black ants are hiding on the long flower.
There're white bugs on the stalk too.
I should remove them soon, before they make any damages on my lovely plant.

    1. No, that's not. It's a perennial plant and the slim stem is wooden

  3. The Acalypha is a bit similar to our Amaranthus, I suppose they are family of each other.

    1. Yes, I think so. They are in different family, but looks almost similar.
