well it basically does dude...invasive species means that it invades a new territory and as there are no natural predators it wont get eaten so it reproduces like crazy...

But you just said it reproduces like crazy... :o

We have this plant in our kitchen !!....we call it colloquially a ' Mother-In-laws-Tongue '


"Mother-in-law's tongue" = "Lidah mertua"? Are you, by any chance, an Indonesian or Malaysian?
