Certainly the plant will flower at some point. Showing a flower / fruit is key to identifying a plant.

Upon showing a reproductive part of a plant, we can identify a plant for you.

Please show as many details as possible to ID the plantl.

You may want to check with the Botanical Garden of Kolkata...they have a reference library and are cultivating over 100 medicinal and wild herbs...perhaps, since it is a native plant, they can give you a positive ID.

I also ran across the Botanic Survey of India, based in Kolkata...here is some contact info for them.

Botanic Survey of India charges around 100 Rupees to identify the plant that's kinda expensive

Sorry, I may have gotten the math wrong. I was thinking that 100 Rupees was equivalent to a little less than $2.00US. We are so used to paying surcharges and taxes on things here that I did not consider the difference in cost.

Aw heck!

If you show us the flowers & fruit of a plant, we can idendify the plant for free!

Please show us as many details as possible.

When the plant shows a flower, then fruit / seed, we can easily find an identification for you.

Foliage reminds me of Francoa - maybe something Saxifragaceae.

I think Francoa itself is indigenous to Chile...Is there a species of Saxifragaceae with prickly leaves?

I'm not sure I understand prickly. The new foliage being purple reminds me of some of the Solanums. Considering Kolkata is in a quite tropical area and the botanical garden would have a good working knowledge of local plants, I'd say themoonhowl's suggestion is a good one.

In looking at the leaves in the pictures, they appear to have small prickles on the leaf margins...

Also, is the small plant to the left the same kind of plant? To which do the small blooms belong?
