The dragon is a mythical creature in many cultures. The Chinese consider dragons to be ultra auspicious. In my school, there is this herbal plant called Ekor Naga (Epipremnum pinnatum). It is also commonly known as Golden Pothos and Dragon Tail Leaves. Looking at the illustration of the Chinese dragon above and the plant in the school herb garden, it is easy to make a connection why the plant is so called.
The Dragon Tail Leave is known as an anti-cancer plant as it is said to be able to enhance the immune system for prevention of this dreaded disease. It is also used to treat diabetes.
