when i see your Karnataka forest  flora pictures, it reminds me there is so much we still do not know about tropical forests. we means mainly myself i guess. if these things have been described in details by people gone by in days gone by


Each time I see a new plant, I feel the same way as well, …

 


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.
