G. Poongothai and Shubashini K. Sripathi    

Abstract: Medicinal plants represent the eternal kindness of almighty for the perpetuation of life in the universe. Pisonia grandis R.Br. is a flowering plant of the four O’clock family Nyctaginaceae, commonly called lettuce tree. The medicinal potential of the plant is well established and is documented by many workers. The present study is aimed to document the physiochemical parameters of the plant P. grandis reared under green house and local environment conditions. Standard methods were adopted for the physiochemical analyses. Physiochemical parameters of leaves, stem and roots of P. grandis revealed that the plant parts are a rich source of metabolites, micro and macro nutrients, minerals, fibers and proteins. Toxic metal contamination in leaves stems and roots of P. grandis are within the World Health Organization (WHO) permissible limits. All feasible documentation obtained from the current investigation makes it a wholesome record on physiochemical parameters of the folkloric medicinal plant P. grandis.
