  Pranic agriculture is an ancient science and art of healing that helps in enhancement of plant growth. The aim of the present study was to understand the morphological qualities (plant length, stem diameter and fruit yield) of pranic treated cucumber. This study has given an insight into the changes in the morphology characteristics of the pranic cucumber as compared to the non-treated cucumber, referred to as control group. Increase in length of cucumber plants by 97% was noticed in pranic cucumber plants when compared to control. Also, pranic cucumber stem was 31.7% more diameter than control group. When group-wise yield was verified, pranic cucumber yielded 20.8% significantly more than control group. Further studies are warranted to evaluate the difference in nutritional composition of pranic and control cucumber fruits.

  Fruits and vegetables are emerging fast as most economical and nutritious global foods. They were declared as healthy foods of the millennium and also described as nutraceutical foods of the century, owing to their health benefits. Ipomoea aquatica Forsk., a commonly grown green leafy vegetable is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fibers, carotenes and flavonoids with many health benefits. It grows as a common weed in lakes and fresh water ponds but it is usually neglected because of lack of complete knowledge about this green leafy vegetable. This study describes useful information about I. aquatica, current research carried out so far and some of the medicinal properties identified and explored. This plant can be used as a natural source and as a nutraceutical substitute or as a functional food.
