Cassia alata (Seven Candle Stick Plant)

I got to know this plant through the GCS forum here .....
This plant has medicinal properties of helping to elevate a person's eczema condition.
Here's the website on it's medicinal properties ....
I got some seeds from Herb Lover and germinated four of them successfully. There are three of them growing in the CG now. The leaves are huge. The last check on them .... I saw some leaves had some green caterpillar on them. I cut off the leaves that had the caterpillar and also cut the caterpillar into two. Have to check the plant carefully for caterpillar infestation.
