Can anyone tell me what are the specific locations in India where i can get the following plants

Illiceum verum
Calophyllum apetalum
Pinanga dickonii
Garcinia morella

You can get all these plants except Illiceum verum from Kerala. You can get it from Kerala Forest Research Institute (www.kfri.org) Peechi or Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute (www.tbgri.in) Palode. You can send a formal letter to the Director(s) of those institute for its availability.
