Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) - Ancient Indian Herb
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Ash Mann
Posted on: May 03, 2004

I have been wishing to come to your store for a few years now - looking through catalogues at work and also online... dreaming of all the herbs I would love to add to my collection... anyhow, I finally got the chance to visit your place last weekend but was disappointed to find out that the main reason I went there - BRAHMI (Bacopa monnieri) - was nowhere to be found!

I remember seeing this in your catalogues last year or a couple of years earlier. I was not able to find the plant or the seeds! :-( Could you please help me out and let me know if you still offer this plant? If not, where can I get some seeds locally (i.e. within driving distance from Toronto?)

Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks for bringing all these wonderful herbs to the masses...

I am sorry you were disappointed but I can assure you that we have never had Bacopa monnieri in our catalogue. We occasionally get asked about the herb and whether we have seeds or plants but it has never appeared in the catalogue.

Bacopa monnieri is on our "wishlist" and we are actively seeking live seeds or plants. But so far our Indian contacts have been unable to supply us with any. However we have not given up. I hope to visit India myself in the next year or so and I will be looking for the plant among others.
