in love with grass from Hooghly:   am proud to announce that this group has changed my outlook towards flora world. My latest darling is this beautiful grass. But who is this exquisite beauty?

Species : Pennisetum sp. ?
Habit & Habitat : wild grass, about 2 ft height
Date : 08.04.2012, 1.45 p.m.

Place : Hooghly (WB)


I think this is Chloris barbata thought my knowledge in grasses are limited.


I hope …is right. (three genera with such digitate spikes are generally common in plains (Bothriochloa, Dichanthium and Chloris). Pennisetum has single thick spike.


you r absolutely right


Well C. barbata will not grow 5ft tall. However the Inflorescence looks like C. barbata.


Thank you … for more mails confirming the ID as Chloris barbata as have been identified by …. I think i have mentioned in my post that this grass is about 2 ft long.


Kindly help identify this golden grass with green leaf blades growing in wild at Pune

First one is Chloris barbata, and the others are of Cyperus species.


leaving the first can the others be Cyperus esculentus 


You may be right, … Lets wait for more comments.

grass on steel & concrete from Hooghly:  Kamarkundu is a railway junction where Howrah-Tarakeswar rail runs on overbridge and Howrah-Burdwan Chord runs underneath. The concrete and steel girdles of the overbridge accumulated dust and debris. Eventually grasses and herbs grew there, attracted insects, maybe some millipedes and certainly microbes also. They added humus component to those dusts and sands and turned the concrete into a cradle of life.

This grass is growing on that cradle of life!
Species : Chloris barbata Sw.
Habit & Habitat : about 2. feet high, narrow leaves of less than 0.5 mm
Date : 20/9/12, 9.52 a.m.
Place Kamarkundu (Hooghly)

have tried taking this cradle apart and see what crawls out and what else is growing there?


It was hard to get a closer view of that space, for i was guarded by steel grid. I will try to obtain some more info on the diversity of that small patch as much as can be noticed through steel frame.


i am not taking any risk, i will look through girdles only. However, i can see, in the first image, a few Acalypha indica and Cayratia trifolia growing there


Cayratia trifolia (L.) Domin is very common in this rainy season along the railway tracks and also along rural roadside. I have modified the first picture to show where it and other herbs can be found in that particular image.
Please, note that my earlier post of C. trifolia (L.) Domin also came from the same place, Kamarkundu Rail Stationefi thread
