Micro- Evaluation of the Peripheral Leaf Architecture of Triumfetta rhomboidea
Abstract: A valuable medicinal plant, Triumfetta rhomboidea, hails from the Malvaceae family and boasts a rich therapeutic profile. Through a systematic analysis of the leaf system of T. rhomboidea, this study endeavours to uncover a deeper knowledge of its anatomical details. Leaf samples taken from Indore region were incorporated into the research. Following established protocols, the leaves underwent analysis using sectioning, staining, and microscopy to gain insights into their peripheral layout. The investigation focused on various elements, including the analysis of the layer, venous progression, angle of veins, and pattern development, laminar study, leaf shape, trichome and various other factors. Both sides of the leaf were discovered to be covered in fine hair, with the highest venation degree reaching a level of 4, the trichome was found to be hairy non-glandular type, the petiole was winged and the pattern of the tertiary vein was found to be orthogonal reticulate. The intricate venation design revealed increased mechanical support and efficient nutrient diffusion. Uncovering the detailed leaf architecture of T. rhomboidea exposes valuable information regarding its resilience, holding potential for implementation in domains including pharmaceutical research, agricultural practices, and environmental stewardship.
