Ṛddhi (ऋद्धि) is the Sanskrit name for an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 5.28-33 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. Notes: Also see Vṛddhi. On the name of Ṛddhi and Vṛddhi the Habenaria species are being supplied in the market (Th. B.S. et al. and P.V.S.). Th. B.S. suggests another species for consideration and investigation i.e. Ciraiyākanda or Mālākanda (Eulophia nuda Lindl.).—The tuberous roots of Ṛddhi and Vṛddhi are covered in a sheath. These tubers are white, hairy, porous. The main plant is a creeper.

Ṛddhi is mentioned as having eleven synonyms: Siddhi, Prāṇadā, Jīvadātrī, Siddhā, Yogyā, Cetanīyā, Rathāṅgī, Maṅgalyā, Lokakāntā, Yaśasyā and Jīvaśreṣṭhā.

Properties and characteristics: “Both Ṛddhi and Vṛddhi are sweet, bitter, cold and unctuous. They improve appetite and mental power. Both are good anthelmintics and control kuṣṭha (leprosy and allied skin diseases) and kapha. In the preparations of fomularies any one of these may serve the purpose according to needs. Their simultaneous use is advised, where both of these are available”.
