The flowers on this woody shrub come in several colors, including white, pink, purple, and red. It's flowers are often used as an offering to different Gods during worship and festivities. These blossoms can make a decorative addition to a home or garden, but they also have medicinal uses.

Q. I exactly followed the care guide given by you, but my plant doesn't look healthy. What should I do?
Our care guides are a simplified version of what you should follow given our tropical humid climate in Mumbai. However, even small changes in light, temperature, water, humidity, fertilization, and insect infestation can all have an impact on your plant. If you just received your plant, please give it some time - every plant takes time to adjust to a new environment.
Q. Are there any chemicals in our plants?
All our herbs are 100% organic. Very few of our decorative plants may have been chemically treated, but that doesn't mean you have to do that too. Most plants will be quite happy with some cow-poop and vermicompost.
