Dear Friends,

I have 2 sets of Photos of a herb (Trichodesma indicum). White one and blue coloured. I hope both these sp are Trichodesma indicum as indicated in Shrikant jis books.

(FOS book (Page 132) and FFOS book (Page 450)  by Shri Shrikant ji has described both this sp.)

(Blue ones were photographed at Dhule region and white one at Prabalgad).
best wishes
Prashant
