It flowered in Sep 2008. We have to wait till 2015 to see it flower again as it flowers every 7 years.
An occasional flowering plant can be observed in any Sep though but rarely.
An occasional plant may show white coloured flowers.
 
In Mackenziea integrifolia leaves margin is entire as in this (Strobilanthes callosus) it is minutely serrulate. In Mackenziea leaves apex is long acuminate but in this short acuminate.

It flowered in Sep 2008. We have to wait till 2015 to see it flower again as it flowers every 7 years.
An occasional flowering plant can be observed in any Sep though but rarely.
Last Sunday I could spot one on Rayareshwar. An occasional plant may show white coloured flowers.

Herb ID request - RK87 - 8-Jan-2013:  Requesting identification of this plant from Tungareshwer. I am confused whether it is Karvi or if it is Mackenziea integrifolia. Would like to know how to differentiate the two in absence of flowers.
This is Strobilanthes callosus Nees.
In Mackenziea integrifolia leaves margin is entire as in this it is minutely serrulate. In Mackenziea leaves apex is long acuminate but in this short acuminate.

Strobilanthes callosus:  Sharing photographs of Strobilanthes callosus
Synonyms: Carvia callosa
Vernacular name: Karvy
Family: Acanthaceae
Location : Pune, MH_Oct 2012
Is it the species will flower once in 19 years?
Strobilanthes callosus appears to be the new/latest/unresolved name of the species on The Plant List we used to call Carvia callosa earlier.
Mass flowering was observed in Western ghats in Sep 2008. (Most pictures on our forum and my collection confirms so) Occasional flowering is observed every year though in an isolated plant in the same region. Its flowering cycle is supposed to be 7 years so next flowering cycle will be in Aug/Sep 2015.
Flowering of Karvy happen after 7 yrs !!
And yes, agree with you ...,
Strobilanthes callosus is a new name for this plant !!
I hd already mentioned Carvia callosa (as a synonym)
N also agreed that in 2008 Karvy was blooming in some region of W.ghats_Glad to share that I'm having photographs of Karvy in 2008 too :) (at Purandar fort n Bhimashankar region.)
I wonderd when i saw blooming in Oct 2012, these Photographs taken near Torna fort, Velhe (Pune) !!
I think the species with 17 year flowering cycle is Strobilanthes kunthianus called Kurinji. Though large scale flowering occurs cyclic we see some plants in flower every year. Had gone to Yercaud to see this sight in the nineties when I lived at Coimbatore. Lovely with less crowd than these days
At present all the 64/68 previously described genera by Bremekamp are merged into one genus Strobilanthes. This plietesial/monocarpic genus is very interesting. We have 30 species in our living collection at Tropical Botanic Garden. Carvia callosa? lost from our collection. 
Strobilanthes kunthianus is having a 12 year flowering cycle. Where as S. lawsonii is telling to having 17 years flowering cycle by Gamble ? But Strobilanthes dupeni Bedd ex Clarke is having 17 years flowering cyle. I have a few plants which flowered in 1995 and the seedling again flowered in 2012 at our garden, so the flowering cycle of S. dupeni is 17 years.

Requesting to please ID this plant captured at Sinhagad, Pune in Aug 2014.
This is Karvi [Carvia callosa].

Strobilanthes callosa is the new name?
Negative. It is still called Carvia callosa - the Common Conehead. Sending a few photographs.

Dr.Almeida in his 'Flora of Maharashtra' Vol-4A; pg.23, refers to it as Carvia callosa. Strobilanthes callosus is listed as a synomym. Bremekempia [pgs 20 - 22] is considered as a separate Genus.
You are right, it is now known as Strobilanthes callosus Nees following the earlier taxonomic concept of treating Strobilanthes as a single genus. Bremekamp had a narrow generic concept of treating  Strobilanthes into several genera and currently his concept has been rejected. According to Bremekamp, the true Strobilanthes was not occurring in India then.

White Strobilanthes for Id no. 130616sn1 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (8)
Your help in iding this plant.
date/time:oct15
location:aambyvalley rd.,lonavala,pune
habitat:wild
plant habit:shrub?
height:more than 5-6 ft.
Pl. check comparative images of Strobilanthes species in efi 
This, I believe is common karvi, Strobilanthes callosus. For some reason, some plants may have borne white flowers.
A good record, This is not common but I have frequently noticed and recorded images of this white variety of Karvi in numerous locations in the past. It's very refreshing to suddenly come upon this unusual bloom amongst vast patches of Karvi blooms in the Sahyadris. 
Thanks ... for the Id though it looks strange.
