I think we have to have a re-look in this matter as earlier such plants has been thought to be Justicia procumbens only as per links:
Further Shrikant ji doesn't mention Justicia procumbens & only mentions Rostellularia crinata syn. Justicia micrantha. Why?
FOI links on these two species are given below:
What is the recognisable difference between Justicia procumbens & Rostellularia crinata syn. Justicia micrantha?
Dinesh ji pointed out differences in the thread:
as " I am attempting to put two differences (referring the FOI links you
1) smooth leaves (*J. procumbens*) ... hairy leaves (*R. crinita*)
2) terminal spikes, often purplish (*J. procumbens*) ... terminal as well
as axillary spikes (*R. crinita*)
I seek views of all the experts on this group. Do we require outside expert opinion in the matter?
