නඟා-මැරූ-අල [Naga-Maru-Ala]/Daffodil Orchid (Ipsea speciosa)

Rather common endemic ground orchid occurs in patana lands  in montane and sub-montane areas. One or two leaves sprout at the end of flowering period and shed when mature, followed by a resting period and after that flowers blooms at the end of spike rising out of the ground among grasses.

  2. Collecting from natural places as well as buying or selling endemic plants are illegal. let them survive in the wild and those are not to keep in your garden.
    ආවේනික ශාක ස්වභාවික ස්ථාන වලින් එකතු කිරීම, විකිනීම හෝ මිලදි ගැනීම නිතිවිරෝධි ක්‍රියාවකි. ඒවා තිබිය යුත්තෙ එම ස්වභාවික පරිසර වල මිස ඔබගේ හෝ මගේ ගෙවත්තේ නොවේ.

    1. I'm a traditional ayurvedic doctor, I agree with you fr some point. But the thing is that if you can cure a person using a plant that grows at your enemies house, what you will do? Do you let your friend to die or find the plant and cure your friend?

      In ayurvedic treatments we use plants without damaging the nature, and also we grow them so that you will need them to pluck them from there natural habitats. If you can do what traditional ayurvedic doctors who loves the nature do. then our resources will never end.

    2. Thing is all those who are surfing this blog are not Ayurvedic doctors and not all Aryuvedic doctors think like you. Some people want to keep those beautiful plants in their home gardens without even knowing that is it the suitable habitat for its growth. Ultimate result would be extinct those plants in wild forever. Then how would you cure patients using those plants?
