Orthosiphon labiatus or Orthosiphon rubicundus ?;
Id please – efloraofindia | Google Groups: 2 images.
… ¿ Eranthemum ? species … reminds me having seen this (such) plant so often, it is a pity cannot remember exactly which !!!!
… on second thoughts, could be some species from Urticaceae family.
I too think its a member of urticaceae, …. Better let’s wait till it flowers!
If I am not wrong this plant is Tragia involucrata L. !!!
The leaves and venation don’t suggest Tragia involucrata
This is not Tragia involucrata… I have a wild guess. but to confirm you should get the flowers….
A Lamiaceaen member? close to Pogostemon… I do remember such a plant in Kerala and Karnataka that has a nice nice smell of some good candy flavor. If so, it can be a Lamiacean member.
… your hint reminds me the sight of Orthosiphon (rubicundus) in Western Ghats in vicinity of Mumbai and Thane.

Plant from Chhattisgarh 15:
Pl confirm wether the leaves are old one having different colour or having same colour in fresh.
During my tenure as D.F.O Bilashpur in Chhatishgarh in the year 2000, I try to understand the traditional use of some medicinal Plant in that area. I came across this type of plant locally called as Kamraj having tuborous root/stem, if it is a herb, it may be some sp. of Orthosiphon. I am attaching some pic of my Orthosiphon rubicundus (experts may pl correct the my id if it is otherwise), which may help you in your plants identification.
But I checked … picture and that definitely looks like Orthosiphon. As you have no flower pictures, you might think the leaves match that of … pic, but both are not similar as I see.
These pictures do not match with images of Orthosiphon rubicundus (D.Don) Benth.
