How does the teacher expect the class to ID plants? Using one of those books
which narrows things down gradually based on various characteristics?
An example would be "Keys to Woody Plants", by W.C. Muenscher, Cornell
My point was based on what I'll admit was a guess: The teacher didn't want
them to post a picture on the web and take the easy way out. He/she might've
wanted them to consult a guide which leads them through the ID process in a
way which helps them learn the proper names for various plant features
(palmate, etc). If that site offers such a thing, I didn't spot it, although
I glanced quickly.
How does the teacher expect you to ID the plant without seeing it in flower?
BTW, Its Ruellia makoyana, a member of the family Acanthaceae.
