During rainy season, rocky hills too blooms.
Ascent of 1088 mtr hillock in Melkote Temple Reserve Forest, Mandya district, Karnataka gifted Didymocarpus tomentosa.

Nice pictures of the Gesneriad. I have another species of this from western Himalaya. Will share it soon.

I think it appears different from Henckelia incana (Vahl) Spreng. as per POWO (syn: Didymocarpus tomentosus) as per images and specimens (one and two) herein.

More likely to be Henckelia wayanadensis
