The aerial part of Mimosa pudica (family: (Mimosaceae)) was studied to fix the parameters for pharmacognostical standards. The results of organoleptic study offer a scientific basis for the use of Mimosa pudica which possess characters like deep green colour, characteristic odour and slightly bitter taste. The fluorescence analysis under visible UV light by treatment with different chemical reagents showed different colour changes. These created an interest to test the possible phytochemical activity of the plant. In the screening process of Mimosa pudica indicate the presence of alkaloids, glycoloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, steroids, phlobatanins, tannins and saponins .The pharmacognostic study was performed by using standard procedure. Further, detailed studies are needed to know whether in-vivo administration of the extracts is beneficial for patients.
