Despite of it is very easy to grow. It needs just some adequate water and a great source of sunlight. The pechay plant is not so popular in the country. So lets talk about it deeper and know the answer.

Some Factors Why Pechay Plant is not so Popular

1. There are few farmers in the country

Even Philippines have a wide range of land masses, few of them are not a farmer, a gardener or even having a passion in gardening.

Some of them don’t want to touch the soil. They feel dirty about it. Some of them also don’t want to be a farmer because they might know that it is very hard work to do and they can’t do it.

A farmer they might thinking about is a person in the farm plowing the soil and harrowing with the help of carabao or even a tracktor. But technologies improve so it will be easy to do. It just need a passion to be more easy.

Also there are few numbers of students in the school dreaming about to be a farmer or a gardener. Most of them want to be a teacher, nurse, doctor, a lawyer, chef actress and many more. They want to be in infrastructure industry and not in the agriculture industry.

They want to be in an office where they are in shade while working. With some other reasons. But people should think about farming or gardening is very important because we get foods coming from the plants. How we can cook pechay plant and serve and eat it if no ones will plant it?

It will increase in number if there will be more gardeners in the country.

2.They have no interest in pechay

This is another reason why pechay plant is no so popular. Some of the farmers or gardeners are planting trees, flowers and other vegetables. So I think this is also another reason.

Some people in the country are planting roses, orchids, tulips, sunflowers, bougainvilleas and other kinds of flowers. Others are growing mangoes, bananas, guyabano, cacao, guavas, avocado, watermelon and many others. Also some are growing eggplant, tomato, bottle gourd, okra, malunggay, ampalaya and other.

So meaning its on the interest. Some people are flower, fruit or vegetable lover. They love a specific plants they want to grow. Some reasons are because they want the colors like the flowers. Some are fruit tree bearing that produces bunch of fruits. And also some are makes shade. So its on the peoples interest why pechay plant is not so much popular.

People have some plants they lover very much.

3.They have no Internet Connection

This is also another thing. Not all in the country have an internet connection. Meaning they cannot go to the web and search for something else like “pechay plant”.

Some people have no internet connection that they can use to surf the web. Or even they have the internet, they are using the free data mode. Meaning they cannot go to the search places like Google, Bing, or Yandex. Even in Youtube. They can just use the free facebook.

Some people also have no laptop or even cellphone device. Not all people in the country have cellphone so that’s also another reason why pechay plant is not so popular.
