Request following information on "dharbam"
1. It's botanical name
2. Availability for cultivation in the home garden (seed-seedling?)
3. What is the scriptural basis of its sacredness?
4. Is it same as Kusha grass
5. Any modern  scientific research on this grass 
6. Whatever else 

I have been enrolled in this group for less than a week.  I am enjoying the 
discussion- In fact the most recent one on Bilva was very interesting and that 
is what made me to raise this issue.
