Keelanelli Plant

Keelanelli plant grows in tropical and subtropical regions of countries in Central and South America, India, and East Asia. The Keelanelli plant can grow to a height of 20 to 25 inches, and its branches have tiny leaves. Fruits appear on the leaves below the leaves and are very small.

It grows beside water bodies, farm bunds, and wastelands and is a short shrub. The plant’s leaves contain ‘Phyllanthin,’ an active component that gives the leaves a pronounced bitterness. It is one of the plants with the highest potassium content. Its unripe fruits look like neelikaai, amla, or gooseberry, but they’re smaller and grow beneath the leaves, earning it the name Keelanelli.

Phyllanthus Niruri is the scientific name for the Keelanelli plant, often known as the Keelanelli plant. It’s also known as a wind gale, stonebreaker, or seed-under-leaf. It is a tropical plant that may be seen growing in damp soil and can be found all along the coast. You can find Keelanelli all around Tamil Nadu. Sometimes you can find this plant in wastelands in cities and towns if you recognize it.
