Bryophyllumpinnatum springs from greek word Bryo means to sprout and phyllon means leaf. The physicochemical study shows presence of alkaloid, flavonoid, lipids, phenols, glycoside, steroids, bufadienolide and organic acid are reported. It is widely used in treatment of hemostatic and wound healing.
