Attaching pictures of * Rhinacantha* * nastus* , Acanthaceae family.
I was attracted to unusual orchid like flowers.
Date January 2008
Southern fringes of Kolkata in A herbal garden, supervised by a junior botanist....
This herb is a shrub, less than 3 feet tall, not woody stem....
2 Pictures showing Flowers, leaves, and insertion pattern of leaves and flowers.
No seed pods or fruits were present then....
no insects hovering around, either....
In Ayurveda and local lore usage, roots and leaves are used for treatment of Krimi
and cutaneous inflammations and reactionary changes.
