Anatomy of Leaf Epidermis and Petiole of Two Selected Species of Hibiscus: An experimental Investigation
The architecture of the leaf epidermis and petiole of two Hibiscus species was investigated in a laboratory experiment using staining of cut sections and microscope viewing. The experiment discovered morphological differences between the two species studied. The foliar anatomy of Hibiscus sabdariffa and Abelmoschus esculentus, as well as differences in the proximal morphologies of the petiole and the number and arrangement of the petiole’s distal end, were investigated. In terms of medicine, hibiscus has When administered as directed, it has been used internally for the treatment of various kinds of and has astringent properties. As a result, differences between H. sabdariffa and A. esculentus were discovered in the presence, distribution, and quality of crystals on the adaxial and abaxial epidermal surfaces of the two species.
