Withania somnifera from Pune: This Ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera ) plant I photographed today ( 20.10.11), at Pune.


I have encountered 6 plants recently, in my locality, at different locations.
And Yr reply makes me think that all these ayurvedic treasures are widespread around us and very few people even identify them ( using them is far thing ) .


When you told the location of Malvastrum in Warje I happened to roam around there.
To my surprise I found a line of these plants. I was waiting for your posts. Even I could capture some better pictures than I had before. Thanks for sharing.
Near the foothills of Mhatoba Vetal Tekdi etc a lot of Indigoferas; crotolarias and Cullen etc are flowering. I will share some during the Papilionaceae week


Yes …, on that Warje internal road, there are ashwagandha plants, I photographed them too.
And now we are waiting for ” lot of Indigoferas; crotolarias and Cullen etc “.


Its good that many people dont know about these plants. Otherwise they wont be found so easily. Withania is getting rare these days because of its medicinal properties.


how do you protect yourselves from mosquitoes when you visit these areas of wild plants in Warje and Vetal tekdi? Sometime back I visited Kalyani nagar area and there were many mosquitoes on the wild plants . Many cases of Malaria and Dengue have been reported from Pune.


There is a pre-dose against malaria which you can take before going to field. There are many mosquito repellents also available in the market.
But I personally feel, that the more you may your self repell these insects, the more effective their bite become :))… let them bite you and you will get used to it,
or after so much of medication you wont have malaria but every bite will cause blisters….


These are side effects of some good sightings in Nature.
Had been to Mahabaleshwar on 1st Oct 2011 with … in wild in search of some epiphytic orchids. We could find Dendrobium mabelae and Oberonia recurva and few other plants other than orchids. On returnig home I happened to notice some Tick bites on my legs.They are worse than mosquito bites One of the wound is still healing; but the joy of catching a good orchid is much more than that…….


You are reminding us of some thing we almost forgot. In our trip to Chakrata in September on first day of our outing, when we stopped for lunch, … and … found blood spots and remnants of leeches on their feet when they opened their shoes. My wife was worried and asked me to open my shoes. There were three spots on one sock and two on another, and when I opened the socks atleast 5-6 had sucked my blood. Next day … and … prepared themselves in army way, tying socks over their shoes with tightly running laces, but in the afternoon they were the attacked the most. After than we took care not to stand long in a marshy place, but there were occasional leech suckings.

    … who had seen the worst of leeches in Western Ghats was always there to reassure us and not to worry about these small leeches.


If you let them come and go on their own it wont be a problem. Just try not to pull them away from your body. It leaves its suckers behind which may cause infection. Make long socks of jeans clothes and wear it inside your shoe. Leeches cant cross these. They can cross pores of normal socks very easily.


Interesting facts on Ashwagandha – Those who want to decrease weight – eat the leaves and those who want to increase weight – take the powder made from its roots.


We face leaches daily during the monsoon and pay no attention at all.
It sucks the blood and drops off by itself. Sometimes 5 to 6 every day. It does not cause any harm except a little loss of blood.


atleast i get very bad time after leach bite, wound takes almost a 2-3 month to recover from the bite,,


The reaction differs from person to person. I never had anything after leech bite. But one I got tick on my waist but I thought it was a pimple. The tick from Rajaji was later released near tiger fall in Chakrata, when one of my friend said that its a tick. I had been carrying it for three days and after releasing I had fever for two
days.
One of my friend in sikkim gets blisters and the flesh around the leech bites dissolves. So if you are not aware of the side affects of the insect or leech on your body then please keep your body covered.
Tobacco leave in water can be used to repel leeches. No idea about ticks. KEEP YOUR BODY PROPERLY COVERED FOR BOTH during field works.
You may also put cotton buds in your ears if you are going in leech sure area. These will certainly help.


A small correction. Leech is an analid, cousin of earthworm.
My experience for ticks is similar to yours. Once I had 42 tick bites I Phansad. All with red thick patches, burning for weeks. Latter also if some surface used to get rubbed on those patches, it use to itch burn horribly. Surprisingly no friend of mine. Along with me had tick bite.
Once I carried a tick with me from Thiruvanantpurum till Thane along with me in train journey and was on me for further one day. Its preserved in lab now.


Very interesting experiences friends, My experience with leeches is, not to pull them out but either squeeze the juice of a lime or salt or tobacco juice, it will drop of by itself. Once you have removed it, let the wound bleed, once the sputum has gone out, the bleeding stops.
If however, you stop the bleeding by applying plaster or medicine, the itching starts after a couple of days and when you scratch, the infection sets in.
As far as ticks go, some of them are poisonous and create an edema.
Doctors normally administer an anti allergen tablet. I get bitten with ticks every day once the monsoon has ended and dry season starts, sometimes 30 to 40 on each leg because of the presence of deers in the farm. Around 5 years back I got bitten by the poisonous variety, normally the bite of this variety does not create any itching. The foot kept on swelling for 3 days and I went to the doctor, who prescribed Avil and the reaction subsided, only, the next time it attacked, the reaction was much faster, I got red patches all over my body, the blood pressure dropped and started developing chest pain.
The third time it was worse, the fourth time the systolic dropped to 45 and I had to be rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night. The doctor advised me to live in a sterilized atmosphere for if it bites me again, I will not reach the hospital. During my visit to Mysore, I discussed it with my Homeopath and he advised me to take the Homeopathy medicine Arsenicum Album 200 . With a few doses, I am now immune to the bite of this poisonous tick. It has bitten me so many times and I have no reactions of any sort. The non poisonous varieties give intense itching and the poisonous variety does not give any indication till the poison has spread. My findings please.


Our guide from Herbal Garden Chakrata (… knows his name) told us that if you take a twig of Artemisia roxburghiana (it is very common there) and rub it around your legs, leeches won’t come. We never tried though, better avoided them.


Our friend from Herbal Garden Chakrata Mr … a Forest ranger, this time also helped us a lot. As the Herbal Garden and Nursery was closed now days. I make a call to him and He sent a person to help us and we got many Bryophytes from there for practical classes. He is a very knowledgeable person and very helping too.

Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal
September 24, 2015 … along NH 4 near Bhuinj, Satara
We had finished our breakfast at a hotel near Satara on Mumbai – Bangalore highway, and were ready to continue further, when Shrikant ji and Prashant showed me Ashwagandha growing by the side of road. I was least expecting it in that place !

Thanks, … A beautiful presentation.


Appears that it came out of hiding to present itself before an avid nature lover, and nature aways spring surprises.


very nicely photographed and serendipity helps those that are prepared.

But i thought Withania somnifera was abundant… is it elusive as ? i did not know that

thanks for leading me to think that may be over collecting. is leading to problems in wild populations???


Thanks …
Not sure how common the plant is in my vicinity – perhaps I oversee the plant – but I have never been able to spot it by myself.

Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park  Jodhpur

Date: October 24, 2018 … Altitude: about 300 m (980 feet) asl
Withania somnifera  (L.) Dunal

must be a local naturally occurring plant.

ayurvedic pharmacological biochemists consider wild ashwagandha from the Rajasthan desert the best because of quality of contents of its roots.

Here in the park, it must have been planted, or by now could have reproduced naturally. The Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park was made in 2006, with the intention of restoring the flora, fauna of the region which was disappearing due to strong invasion of non-native Prosopis juliflora.


Very interesting! most likely volunteered in. seeds germinate and grow very fast, even in a pot in balcony
