[1032013] AP1-Plant for id from Ambala Cantt Haryana: (mixed thread): 9 correct images as above.


It may be Chenopodium ambrosioides.To me also this looked like C. ambrosoides, you can do little efforts to confirm, try to locate the plant, smell the foliage, if this gives a sharp smell, it is confirmed..

Urticaceae? ABJUL01/43 : 12 posts by 3 authors. 7 images.

Finally this plant which I think could belong to Urticaceae looking at the very tiny flowers and sessile buds. The leaves were very different from any of the nettles I have seen, so it may be a completely different family. Please advise.

Very interesting details & nice capture!!!


This could be a species of Ammannia (Ammannia baccifera). The plant seems to have been infected.


Thanks, …, for the possible Id. Appears like images at Ammannia baccifera, but I am not too sure.


Is it strongly aromatic herb? If so there are possibilities of Dysphania ambrosioides (Chenopodiaceae).


Thank you once again … I am afraid I do not remember checking it for aroma but I can go and find the plant soon and report back. Your ID looks tantalisingly close.


You were spot on …. It is a very strong smelling herb.
I cannot place the smell, something between a balm and kerosene, but not altogether unpleasant. Do you think I can brew a tea with the leaves?

Pouzolzia for sure, but looks too much branched for P. zeylanica.


I think it should be Dysphania ambrosioides (Chenopodiaceae).

Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae Week :: DV20 :: QUERY :: Chenopodium ambrosioides citations:

At ENVIS / FRLHT, we have Chenopodium ambrosioides Bert. ex Steud.
At NPGS / GRIN, we have Chenopodium ambrosioides L. synonym of Dysphania ambrosioides (L.) Mosyakin & Clemants
Naively hoping that the two Chenopodium ambrosioides are related as synonyms … ELSE getting names for Dysphania ambrosioides in languages of India is going to get difficult !
Please throw some light – whether these are synonyms.

If the two Chenopodium ambrosioides are NOT related as synonyms … there may be some error somewhere … English names listed for Chenopodium ambrosioides Bert. ex Steud. at ENVIS / FRLHT .. are ditto that of Dysphania ambrosioides (L.) Mosyakin & Clemants at Wikipedia and elsewhere.


OK … I will go with common names listed for Chenopodium ambrosioides Bert. ex Steud.
These names would be compiled for Chenopodium ambrosioides L. synonym of Dysphania ambrosioides (L.) Mosyakin & Clemants
Will wait for any valid reasoning.

This is a non-invasive, annual weed in Dhanotu Village (altitude: 770m, near Dharamsala, Kangra, HP). The leaves emit a really strong, unpleasent odor when crushed.

Manipuri name of Dysphania ambrosioides in Meitei script:
Please help in putting the Manipuri name of Dysphania ambrosioides, tersing nambi in Meitei script.
Reference: Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants in Manipur


Tersing doesn’t appear to be a correct name. Manipuri people around me haven’t heard of a word called tersingNambi means smell. One guess is that tersing may be a distortion of kerosene – old Manipuri folks pronounce it as तेरासिन. So the meaning could be, something smelling like kerosene. The plant is anyway known to have a pungent smell. One name of this plant is ꯃꯣꯟꯁꯥꯥꯑꯣꯕꯤ ꯃꯥꯟꯕꯤ Monsaobi manbi


I am aware of the name ꯃꯣꯟꯁꯥꯥꯑꯣꯕꯤ ꯃꯥꯟꯕꯤ Monsaobi manbi from your site.
Your guess about tersing for kerosene is a very great help.
तेरासिन must be one of the pronunciation for the foreign word “kerosene”.
Thus, I think tersing nambi is okay for putting in Meitei script … though literal meaning may sound amusing – kerosene smelling
Mizo name for the plant is on same lines – – khawnvar-tui-rim-nam … (khawnvar-tui = kerosene; rim-nam = smelling)
Malayalam name for the plant is മണ്ണെണ്ണച്ചെടി mannennachcheti … (kerosene plant)

Deadly research you did in a matter of an hour on this aspect! Now Kerosene fits well, as the plant names have similar allusions in Mizo and Malayalam. That is why I am continually amazed at your plant names research! Great job!
Tersing nambi will be written as ꯇꯦꯔꯁꯤꯡ ꯅꯝꯕꯤ (pronounced as तेरसिंग नम्बी)
By the way, I know Kapil Arambam and Chitra Ahanthem quite well.

Thank you very much dear Tabish for help with this name of the plant.
I wish more and more that the names of plants in north-eastern languages come to be known – and as much possible in their native scripts. Challenging but satisfying work !!
