Hi,
I had uploaded pics of Chlorophytum sp. in the 1st week of June 2010. Now i have attached pics of fruits of Chlorophytum sp.

My observation:
Pics of flowers were taken on 8th June 2010.
The pic of fruits (no 1 and 2) of the same plant were taken on 12th June 2010,. i.e.4 days after the flowering. ( fruits were just formed.)
In the pic no 6, which is taken on 7th July 2010, the fruit has ruptured and is ready for dispersal of seeds. (this pic is not of the same plant. the plant which i had photographed earlier has now no flowers and no fruits.)
Cheers,
Shubhada

Subject: Chlorophytum tuberosum - second wild flower of the season

Hi friends,
I saw second wild flower of the season in the forest at CEC, Goregaon, Mumbai today.

Bot. name : Chlorophytum tuberosum
local name :Kuli
Hindi: Safed Musli
famiily Liliaceae
One can see these flowers immediately after the first few showers. The leaves are cooked and eaten. This herb is also called edible chlorophytum. Leaves are radical and membranous.

Etymology:

Chloros = green and Phyton is a plant.

Roots are tuberous, hence tuberosum


cheers,
shubhada
