We only hear the name of this plant in Khmer popular song or would hear about Komping Pouy Water Dam, but many of us don't have any idea how it actually looks like.
Here it goes, Pka Komping Pouy. It grows in bushes with soft stems, easily planted with minimal care. We see more of these plants grown wild in farm or rural areas.
