Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) potted plant, organic

$7.50$50.00

Family:  Figwort (Scrophulariaceae)

Hardy to Zone 8 to 12

Creeping, succulent herb native to India. Traditional use:  Ayurveda, used to sharpen the mind and stimulate the memory. Does well in pots.  The plant prefers moist, fertile soil and does not require good drainage. Partial shade and humid air are helpful, but the plant will also survive in full sun at the edge of a pond or stream. It is also possible to grow brahmi indoors in an aquarium. They thrive in the greenhouse. The plant is dark green, with a thick stem and small leaves, flowering light lavender.

Potted plant certified organically grown

  1. Question

    Emily

    Can I grow this in a shallow area of my pond or in the stream bed? Can it be potted and taken indoors for the winter?

      Hi Emily,
      Bacopa is easy to grow in a whole slew of different environments. I would say mud at shore of pond would be better than IN the pond. The plant is relatively easy to pot up and bring in for the winter. This is a forgiving plant, I personally introduced it to the herbal trade in North America, and I doubt i could get rid of it if I wanted to! Richo

      Standard 3-inch pots, the plant makes very little root mass and scads of aerial parts, nice, the nature of the beast.
