I think you are correct, the plant is indeed. Peristylus goodyeroides (D. Don) Lindl.


I think both of the above are absolutely wrong indeed.

Can anyone think of a Chlorophytum with long inflorescence in Maharastra? Those yellow things near the mouth of buds seems to me like anthers. So this cant be an Orchid at all. Even leaves doesnt point towards any of the Peristylus known to me. P. goodyeroides is absolutely ruled out. P. plantagineus, the colour doesnt match at all.

Can you check if this is some Polygonum?


This would be Chlorophytum glaucum or C. glaucoides. More likely to be the latter looking at the tip of raceme.


it is a species of Chlorophytum. It is not C.borivillianum, it is not C. tuberosum, Not C.laxum, It may be C.arundinaceum. But the distribution may not match for this species.


I guess Peristylus plantagineus looks good !


This looks like Chlorophytum arundinaceum … Please tell the collector to compare the plants with C. arundinaceum.
