Brahmi Plants

Bacopa Monnieri

This herb plant is prized for its medicinal properties. Used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Brahmi, isused to cure epilepsy and as an anti-aging cure all. It has been proven in contemporary medical studies as an effective treatment for improving memory, anxiety, stomach ailments and as a general tonic to fight stress. It's flavonoid and alkaloid chemical content make it a valuable medicinal herb.

Brahmi plants practically grow themselves. Thriving under substandard conditions, the brahmi herb prefers consistently moist to wet soil and can even grow in water gardens. Try planting in a marshy area such as by a pond or river embankment. This creeping herb makes a great ground cover and blooms continuously from Spring to late Fall. Make sure to prune back every other year as Brahmi plants can be somewhat invasive if not kept in check.

If you plan to use the Bacopa Monnieri plant medically, be aware that there may be some side effects. Bacopa may also interact adversely with other medication, so make sure to consult your doctor before using.

Beautiful and really does help with memory April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Ronald Wells from Miami, FL United States  
Mine has exploded in size in only three weeks. Make sure it stays damp. Beautiful little lavendar/pink flowers. I put it in a tea with till and mint for my mother-in- law and aunt and it helps them with chronic pain and does improve their memory.

Arrived Healthy & Is Doing Well! May 8, 2017
Reviewer: Ayralynne Coviello from Brooksville, FL United States  
This is my third time ordering from The Growers Exchange and I have never been disappointed! This little Brahmi arrived healthy and I planted him in a pot with no drainage and he is doing very well! The plant appears to love Florida's hot and humid weather and I couldn't be happier! I can tell it definitely will outgrow this pot soon, so heed the warning about keeping in check if planted outside of a pot.

awesome plant! October 4, 2016
Reviewer: daniel briere from north scituate, RI United States  
Almost succulent leaves, and loves water and sun! My plant tripled in size over the past weeks with repotting, I gave it a wider shorter pot, and it seems to love to spread! Arrived in superior condition, with small flower buds that opened for me immediately after potting it up and placing in sun. Very satisfied! Danny from RI
