Dear Dr. Singh:
quite, interestingly the seed pods are very different....
even if the flowers may cause confusion in the first look... with s.
alata...

thanks... got to see S. alata seedpods this weekend....very different
from you pic number two.
thanks...

Dear Gurcharan Sir,
Thanks a lot for removing doubts I had for this plant. I actually
could not distinguish the two clearly distinct plants. Thanks again.
Regards,
