Figure 1: (a) Graptophyllum pictum (L.) Griff. Plant. (b) TS of stem of G. pictum at 10X showed single layered epidermal cells (Ep) covered with cuticle (CT), hypodermis (Hp), collenchyma (CCh), endodermis (Ed), pericycle (PC), parenchymatous cortex (Co), vascular bundle (VB), medullary rays (MR), and pith (PT). (c) TS of stem of G. pictum at 10X showed single layered epidermal cells (Ep) with trichome (Tr) and cystolith (Cyst), hypodermis (Hp), collenchyma (CCh), parenchymatous cortex (Co), xylem (Xy) and phloem (Ph), medullary rays (MR), and pith (PT). (d) TS of stem of G. pictum at 10X showed conjoint, collateral, and open vascular bundles (VB) consists of endarch Xylem (Xy) and Phloem (Ph), cortex (Co), endodermis (Ed), pericycle (PC), medullary rays (MR), and parenchymatous pith (PT). (e) TS of stem of G. pictum viewed at 40X showed vascular bundles (VB) consists of Xylem (Xy) and Phloem (Ph) along with sclerenchymatous cells (Sc). (f) TS of stem of G. pictum viewed at 40X showed epidermal cells (Ep), cuticle (Cu), hypodermis (Hp), unicellular covering trichomes (Tr), and parenchymatous cortex (CO)
