    Not in Singapore. But I ever 'kana' poison ivy rash in the past while schooling in the US. Very itchy man! . Feels like amputating myself just to seek relief.

    Anyway, I went to see a doctor and guess what medication he gave me - calamine lotion and hydrocortisone cream (both of these can be bought very cheaply from most pharmacies in Singapore).

    Damage done to my wallet - US$110 before prescription.

    I read somewhere that this stuff can be useful somehow.

    Some of the uses I read on the internet includes:

    1. Growing them on your fence to prevent your nosey neighbor from poking into your privacy.

    2. Growing them alongside in your garden to prevent your neighbors from stealing your fruits.

    3. Keep out noisy kids from playing and breaking peace near your house by planting them everywhere.

    4. Send it as part of that bouquet or sap-clean the gift for your ex or 'best' friend

    5. Force your neigbor from hell to move by planting this in their backyard

    6. and the list goes on...


    Anyone tried any of these?

    Nope. Not selling. Just kinda like the shape of the leaves and it's color changing ability through the seasons. Moreover they seem to adapt well in all sorts of growing environment.

    I was thinking of shipping some back to S'pore to plant it.
