Sawtooth plant


I visited the LFS today.  The normal plant buyer was in the Cayman Islands 
for a couple weeks and someone else made their plant order.  I understand 
that the order consisted of "Just send us some stuff."  What they got was a 
fairly unusual mix.

One of the plants was something they called "sawtooth plant."  No one there 
knew what it was, but it looked interesting so I bought some.  As I was 
leaving one of the guys commented that he might have heard it called mermaid 

Looking at photos on the web it does appear that it might be mermaid weed -- 
Proserpinaca pectinata.  I know the plant has been mentioned on the list 
before.  What are your experiences growing this plant?
