Small Plant For ID : Pink Flowers : MNP,Mumbai : 27APR15 : AK-5 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1)
Saw this plant with tiny flowers at MNP, Mumbai.

Not very sure whether a wild or cultivated plant.

Unfortunately, I have just this picture.


DO  THE BACK GROUND LEAVES BELONG TO THIS PLANT ?….


No, those are some other leaves.


I think I have found the id.

It is Talinum paniculatum.
It is photographed from the same place by … FOI

Experts kindly verify.


good for you but you have to agree your diagnosis would carry more weight if you also had even one snapshot of the leaves to match mr Awale’s picture on FOI


Should be Talinum paniculatum only, paniculate inflorescence, sepals not persisting in fruit, long slender pedicels, infl. nodding.

Has been placed under T. fruticosum on the website.

open only at 2 pm and wither by 4 pm. You can call these as ‘siesta flowers’


… has Id’d this plant as
This should be Talinum portulacifolium (Forssk.) Asch. ex Schweinf. of Talinaceae family. Many many thanks … for the Id and your help.

I think it should be Talinum paniculatum (Jacq.) Gaertn. as per details and references herein.

Thanks … These photos also look similar to me.


I couldn’t get you. Similar means Talinum paniculatum or equally bad and confusing as the earlier ones?


Similar means the second set of photos also looks like Talinum paniculatum. It does not mean anything else !.


Yes, Talinum paniculatum (Jacq.) Gaertn. as per images and details herein and as per comparative images at Talinum
