G.S. Nagananda and Nalini Satishchandra

Abstract:
Flickingeria nodosa (Dalz.) Seidenf is a medicinally important orchid plant. It is used for the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, throat infections, dermatological infections and also used as blood purifier. Based on its importance the present study was designed to evaluate its antibacterial and antifungal activity against human pathogens with cold and hot successive extracts. The antimicrobial activities of the plant extracts were evaluated against 7 bacterial and 6 fungal strains using well diffusion method on Mueller Hinton agar medium. The cold water extract has antibacterial activity against S. aureus and S. citreus with maximum zone of inhibition. The cold chloroform extract has good antifungal activity against T. mentagrophytes. The plant can be a source material to herbal drug industry since it has some important antimicrobial components in the extracts that can be used for the development of therapeutic phytomedicine.
