Houttuynia is a herbaceous plant with knots on the stems, and the leaves are also alternate, shaped like a heart; the flowers are very dense but small and will bear fruit. In addition, the roots and leaves of houttuynia cordata have a fishy smell,  which is why the name is Houttuynia. When buying and picking Houttuynia, if Houttuynia has rotted or deteriorated, it is not suitable for purchase. In addition, you can put Houttuynia in your nose and smell it.  If it has a peculiar smell, it is not suitable for purchase.
