I saw this plant in a nursery near Chennai. The trade name for this is 'bottle tree', owing to the bottle-shaped butress of this small tree. Am I right sir, Am I referring the same plant?

I dont think this grows to the size of tree. Infact the other plant
Jatropha podagrica has swollen base and gives a look of pot or swollen
as the name podagrica suggests.
