Wild plant growing in a plant nursery on 21/3/12.

Chamaesyce hypericifolia?


Small prostrate herb
It may be Euphorbia indica


It is E. hyssopifolia L. The infl. of cyathia are subtended by small floral leaves and the stems are straw-coloured.
In E. hypericifolia L., the infl. of cyathia are not subtended by small floral leaves and the stems are reddish.


Thanks a lot for correcting and validating my plant from Nasik.
