Hi,All !,
Can any body give me the information regarding the cultivation of Picrorrhiza kurroa i.e. Kutaki. I know that Pune is not the suitable destination but I want to try it in shed net or polyhouse etc. It may be difficult but not impossible. In Ayurveda it is most wanted drug or raw material and righ now overexploited.Need to conserve and cultivate in large.
Please send details, Sites, links whatever you have.
Thanx,
Dr. Kadus Arvind,Pune.

It grows at higher altitudes I think so not sure about its cultivation at lower elevations. Just for information, I am attaching two pics of the plant from Tunganath, Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary, Uttarakhand. Pic was taken in 2009.

Dear Arvind Kadus ji,
Please check the following link. It gives a little detail that it can be cultivated in polyhouse at 1300 M above MSL
It also mentions certain pests etc.
