    The second time of that plant here.
    When of the first apparition of here, I pointed out the presence in it of cancer-inducing phorbols, that represent serious risk for many people.
    It is very common in culture here in Brasil.
    But some people link the presence of the species with deaths after some time (they say that, when their roots reach the house, someone will die).
