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.
