Dan, do you think it's similar enough to be the same species? Seems possible.
Hmm, Seema, I don't think it's a poison. The village kids I was with at the time of the photo were playing around with it. Also, it's apparently a widely cultivated herb: http://www.iloveindia.com/indian-herbs/s...
Batocera rufomaculata seems the closest, but I'm still not entirely sure.
Thanks a lot, Ava. Kalanchoe prolifera is spot on!
It was probably about 40-50cm tall.
No, I'm not sure. But it still looks like a tamarind leaf to me. Any other suggestions?
Sorry to disappoint. This was in Darjeeling.
Thanks! Iskoos is the Nepali name used in the area it was spotted.
