CHICKWEED (Stellaria media)
Chickweed is a rapidly growing plant that thrives in a wide variety of soil conditions. While many gardeners and homeowners try to kill it in their lawns and gardens, the plant is actually edible. Chickweed is used in herbal remedies and tea and even as a salad. Because the care requirements for chickweed are very basic, you can sprout and grow the seeds indoors as well as outdoors. When planted indoors, chickweed will grow year-round. http://www.ehow.com/how_7488828_grow-chickweed-indoors.html
