Got a glimpse of this plant after a long time !!
Long ago it was uploaded by Arati Ji probably she recorded this plant from Jijamata Udyan , Mumbai.
Nice catch of the plant !!

Tanay ji,
very strong memory.
V.J.B.Udyan and Jijamata Udyan are the same. it is also called Rani Bagh or Byculla zoo.

Cheers,
Shubhada
