Herbal healers have also used dried leaves to treat headaches with tea brewed from them.

How to sow and care for Blue Ipomea Bindweed Seeds
Behind the threat of past frosts and warm soil, morning glory seeds can be sown directly in the garden. Seeds should be sown indoors about four to six weeks before the last frost in your area. Water spinach seeds have relatively hard seed coats, so soak them in water overnight or point them out before sowing. Water spinach seeds should be sown about 1cm deep and given about 1531cm. distance. When they are about 6 inches tall, you can help curl the plants.
You can simply let the plants spill over the rims of the growing containers in hanging baskets. Water spinach is also very easy to care for. Once established, they require very little care. You should keep the soil moist, but not too wet. If the weather gets dry, water them every two to three days. In warmer regions, potted plants may need extra watering. Simply remove spent flowers as they wilt or any vines that die after the first frost in fall to reduce seeding and control unwanted spread.
