Uvaria narum – Kariballi in kannada
Many many thanks, for the ID help.
The mature leaves of U. hamiltonii are densely hirsute and rough on backside. however in U. lurida the leaves are glabrous. Please check it. I dont think this can be U. hamiltonii.
I am keeping on the debate, It may be Uvaria zeylanica, rather than U. concava (=U. lurida). … should clarify.
I have not studied this genus so I am not very sure. But i dont think its U. zeylanica since it has much smaller leaves and flat lanceolate petals (not concave). I dont think its hamiltonii or lurida as they are known only from north east and Orissa. U. hamiltonii also has tomentose leaves while the leaves look glabrous in this species, I think it could be either U. narum or U. hookerii. A photo of the fruit and a LS of a fruitlet might help.
I shall go for Uvaria narum (Dunal) Blume with distribution
Help -Uvaria narum
The root formed; but first leaves are not coming from Seed. Any ideas?
Spray water morning and evening and watch out. Also water the seedling. Donot allow it to dry.
