Thanks & congrats, …,
I think you are talking about this thread (Dipcadi for ID:) which went unconfirmed.
Can we take it now as Dipcadi montanum ?
As I remember somebody from India itself has proposed this variety as a distinct species as D.madrasicum. I do not know whether it was published or not.
Mam it seems Dipcadi montana only, It is frequently available around Chennai
May I request you to pl. validate this species as you have published a paper on this.
Thank you …; after critical reading of the paper I confirm the species I collected from N.Konda (a small hill) near Nellore is Dipcadi montanum only
Pls share the information regarding the place of collection and height of plant. I feel some differences from the specimen which I have collected.
It is collected from Nellore of A.P; and also in Velugonda a place in Nalla mala hills near Srisailam of A.P.
I have planted the tuber of Dipcadi in my house, attaching the close up of flowers, these are the flowers I got in that plant.
