To establish quality control parameters of a locally occurring medicinal plant, Trianthema portulacastrum Linn. Tella galijeru (Aizoaceae) is a diffuse, prostrate, branched herb, upto 30–65 cm long weed.
In pharmacognostic studies different types of evaluations were carried on microscopic, macroscopic, fluorescence analysis and organoleptic evaluations.
The organoleptic, macroscopic, microscopic characters results of this study could be used for the quality control of the crude drug, Number of stomata present per square millimeter of epidermis of leaf.
This study provides the scientific data for the proper identification and establishment of standards for the use of Trianthema portulacastrum Tella galijeru.
