Cynanchum auriculatum is a vine species of the genus Cynanchum and the family Apocynaceae. The plant’s synonyms include Cynanchum auriculatum var. amamianum and Cynanchum auriculatum var. auriculatum. The plant’s common name in China is niu pi xiao. The plant is indigenous to countries that reside in the Asian tropical and temperate regions. Such countries include Nepal, India, China, Pakistan, and Bhutan. The plant’s leaves are papery, ovate and have a length of 4.5 to 11 cm and a width of 2.6 to 7 cm. The inflorescence has many flowers of different colours including pink, purple, white and pale yellow. Each flower has a length of between 6 to 8 mm long. The seeds are ovate, brown, and have a length of 8 to 9 mm. The plant’s roots contain a type of ethanol that is currently undergoing research and testing to see whether it’s capable of yielding cancer medication. The initial results seem positive enough given the ethanol’s cytotoxic properties affect the tumour cells. The roots are also edible and are a popular starchy food in several parts of China. The roots pair well with many condiments and are, therefore, a regular fixture in Chinese cuisine. Cynanchum auriculatum is also a regular source of herbal remedies for the Chinese people. The plant is reliable now just as it has been for centuries. The plant’s remedies supposedly have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties that aid them in curing some conditions. Cynanchum auriculatum prospers in sunny environments where it can benefit from the prolonged exposure. Sunlight is critical for photosynthesis which aids plant growth. The plant prefers moist, fertile and well-drained soils that have a favourable pH. A conducive pH should be slightly acidic, neutral or slightly alkaline. Cynanchum auriculatum is not a hardy plant, and one would be well advised not to grow it in areas that are too hot or too cold.
