Abstract

Petrea volubilis L. is an ornamental flowering liana, belonging to family Verbenaceae. This ornamental flowering liana absorbs the silica in the form of monosilicic acid from the soil through their roots and deposited in the cells of leaves. Silica is one of the most beneficial elements for plants growing under biotic and abiotic stresses. Present study demonstrates the silica deposition pattern in the leaves of P. volubilis and reported a number of phytolith types.
