Very Nice. Thanks for sharing a different plant. I have observed Gnetum ulla in western ghats.


Very interesting and good photographs. First is fruit, second is male and third is female inflorescence.


Beautiful pictures of a rare plant! Thanks … for sharing. Do you have pictures of leaves by any chance?
