Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) potted plant, organic

(6 customer reviews)

$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

    Kishore (verified owner)

    Hello, I am new to growing plants, and just ordered potted Brahmi. I am not sure how we can maintain a 55 F temp in the house. We set our thermostat between 70F ~ 72F. Do I need to get a miniature greenhouse urgently to grow this plant ? My plants are supposed to be arriving on Friday. Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you

      Hi Kishore, 55 degrees F is the minimum temp for tropical plants, it is not really the desired ambient temperature. Higher temps will be appreciated. I think you can repot to a gallon pot and keep in a sunny window and see how it does. I’ve kept these before in fish tanks, even. However, they really do best outdoors. Most plants are like that.

    Zone 3 - Great as a potted plant!

    Mary

    Pleased, as always, with the healthy plants Richo sends, I put this one in a large planter in my greenhouse and watched it explode over the summer. It rapidly outgrew the planter and started cascading down the wall eventually producing delicate flowers. It required several “hair cuts” over the summer which were dried for medicinal use. I have found the “winter greenhouse” too cool for it (ave 40F at night), so bring it in the house and place it in a south-facing window where it happily overwinters even in our extremly low humidity. Much more tolerant and forgiving than Gotu Kola growing next to it.

      Thanks for the zone and greenhouse temp detail! I had been hesitating for indoors at zone 6, but now it’s in my cart

  3. Question

    Emme

    I’ve never ordered plants online before, we were worried they will not survive shipment to North Phoenix. Right now we can still reach the low 100s F. I’m wondering if I should wait for cooler months to order Bacopa and Gotu Kola. What would be the optimal weather/temperature for shipping plants to our area?

      Well, we shipped 1,500 plants on Sep 9th and had one that experienced heat trauma in transit. Basically, don’t worry, we insulate every shipment, and you’re buying tropical plants that like lots of heat. richo

      Thank you, the plants arrived quickly and I was able to pot them within an hour they arrived at the mailbox. They are now getting acclimated to the sun bit by bit per instructions. 60Fs at night still okay for the small plants to be outdoors?

      Thanks, yes, Brahmi is fun to work with. Remember that tropical plants must remain above 55 degrees F to remain undamaged. r

  4. 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.
