Bacopa monnieri (Brahmi) CC

Please select all options.

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.  It took us many years of growing brahmi before we were actually able to identify and isolate the seeds, which are quite small, ovoid, netted, and glistening.  Sow seeds on surface of moist soil.  Press in gently and  keep warm, evenly moist and in the light until germination, which occurs in 10 days according to my actual tests.  The seedlings are incredibly small.  Allow seedlings to grow until large enough to individuate to pots.  If planting directly in moist beds in summer garden or greenhouse, space plants 1 foot apart. They will spread into a mat.
