    Default Arundina graminifolia

    This plant was bought some time ago and already in spike. The new one just opened yesterday. No credit for growing it. According to the vendor, this plant comes from India. Plant is about 1 feet tall, no scent. If there only one Arundina sp ie Arundina graminifolia?

    I saw some posts from my friends in India also discussing about a subspecies from South India which is much darker and smaller than the well known north Indian variety. May be this plant comes from South India.
