  1. Hi Divya
    Where we can get this keeai at Coimbatore? Any idea?

    1. I have seen in the places where creepers are there. I got it near my place where i lived. Or else ask a person who is from village to get that keerai and you can plant it. As it is a creeper it grows quickly in your place.
