pūtīka Is the name of a plant often mentioned as a sub­stitute for the Soma plant. It is also given in the Taittirlya Samhitā as a means of making milk curdle, being an alternative to the bark of the Butea frondosa (parna-valka). It is usually identified with the Guilandina Bonduc, but Hillebrandt makes it out to be the Basella Cordifolia.
