Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi)

(6 customer reviews)


Brahmi — in this case bacopa monnieri not gotu kola — may help improve cognitive abilities. It also is considered an adoptogen, which helps your mind maintain an even keel. (We also grow gotu kola if that’s what you’re looking for.)

Like neem, Bacopa monnieri — also known as brahmi — is a cornerstone of Ayurveda, one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It is traditionally known as a “brain food” and is used to consecrate newborn babies and open their minds. More recent research shows that it can help improve learning and memory in both humans and mice. It also is a potent source of antioxidants, which may help protect the brain from environmental toxins. Finally, bacopa has constituents that calm the nervous system, making it easier to learn. *

Bacopa is very easy to grow in a sunny window. In fact, it’s also known as water hyssop and grows wild in warm parts of the U.S. where it is the host plant for white peacock butterflies. We try and keep bacopa growing near the house where it’s easy to stop and pick a handful of leaves. They’re a little bitter but not difficult to tolerate (particularly compared to neem!)

It can also be grown in aquariums. These plants are shipped in potting soil but can be easily grown in water.

    My plants arrived fresh and well wrapped – what I ordered was hard to find elsewhere Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi). Glad I found it here and at a reasonable price. It attracts butterflies, can’t wait!!

    Arrived perfect. No replanting issues. Great customer service. Thanks a bunch!!

  5. Kumar Swaminathan

    Shipping was great. Arrived alive and healthy. After potting, it didn’t like the extreme heat here in Southern CA. Keeping it shade and watering a lot keeps it alive. I am sure they will make it.

    I was very happy to receive the Bacopa and it’s thriving potted with lots of water. It’s being kept as a houseplant as I live on Long Island, but it will be given a summer vacation in partial shade with my other houseplants. It is a really beautiful plant and am looking forward to watching it bloom.
