Pink Ruellia. Note that the our purple version of Ruellia grows as a wild plant. The seeds make cracker like sounds when the pods are placed in water.

Arif sahab has always something impressive and nice to share.

Good thing about these variety is that they do not form seeds, but you can easily propagate it from cuttings or pups..

True, where do the pups come from?

True I don't recall seeing seeds of the pink one, but the purple one does (children's past-time to play with the seeds in water).

Some online vendors do claim to sell this seeds of the pink version

I was of the opinion that the Izhars pups were seedlings, the see pods are so rare that they go un noticed. So my question where do the pups come from?

The seeds are readily available from Panam seeds but the plants rarely set seeds.. it is available in pink, purple and white forms.. the common weed like purple ruellia is invasive in garden but it is good plant for less watered areas...

Sir, pups are formed from the base of plants, they can be separated from mother plants when they grow their own roots...

The pups I am referring to were growing no where near the main stem, they must be seedlings.
