Chlorophytnum borivilianum Santapau ex R.R. Fern. is a perennial geophyte that perennates with the help of tubers. The digitate sessile tubers are born on the undersurface of a discoid stem. A cluster of 10–17 leaves is produced by the perennating stem with the onset of the monsoon or just few days before onset of the monsoon. Generally one flowering scape is produced by the each plant. However, on occasions more than one scape may also be produced by an individual plant. This is an important medicinal species which is confined mainly to the southern part of the state of Rajasthan.
