    The following inquiry was received via e-mail on August 17, 2005:

    I'm an illustrator looking for a good reference of the jeevani plant - I think it's Trichopus zeylanicus. There's very little on the internet. Do you possibly have a picture I could use?

    The plant that you are inquiring about is not well known here. The leaves of a Trichopus zeylanicus are used in herbal medicines to relieve anti-fatique and anti-stress. Currently, it is mainly sold in India and the U.S. We were unable to find any good photos of this plant, but found one on Google:

    You might also want to check out the Botanical Garden Conservation International website ( and search for botanical gardens in India that may be able to assist you further.

    All the best of luck!
