In China, individual stock investors will be teasingly named "Chinese chives being cut".

Chen grabbed the opportunity to explain to her followers the mystery behind the plant's seemingly endless regeneration.

During last year's Mother's Day on May 8, Chen did a video on the orange daylily, which symbolizes filial piety in traditional Chinese culture.

She then took her audience on a learning journey about the plant, from such angles as how it was often planted by ancient travelers around the place of their stay to wish trouble away from their mother back at home.

When sugar cane hits the market in winter, she would timely warn people against eating those turning red.

"It is an indication of it going bad, which produces a toxin that could impair our nervous system," she explains.

"I feel proud and my job valued when people say they know about it because of me."
