ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the investigation was to see if the leaves of Colocasia esculenta Linn were antibacterial. Taro is a plant whose tubers are commonly consumed by Indonesians. Taro leaves, in addition to tubers, can be used as an alternate medication. As a result of their antibacterial qualities. The content Secondary metabolites found in taro leaves have the ability to stop dangerous microorganisms from growing, including Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. The method used in this research is to use taro leaf extract, which is divided into various concentration variations. Taro leaf extract is made using hydroalcoholic solvents. The results showed that each concentration showed an antibacterial ability to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. The higher the concentration of taro leaf extract used, the greater its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria. This study utilised taro leaf extract, which was separated into various concentrations. variants. Using an hydroalcoholic solvent to extract taro leaves at the time. The findings revealed that each concentration had a different effect and exhibited antibacterial properties by reducing the growth of harmful bacteria proliferation. The higher the content of taro leaf extract, the better. The more it's used, the more it'll be able to stop bacteria from growing. A hydroalcoholic extract of Colocasia esculenta was found to have antibacterial activity against S. Aureus, P. Aeruginosa, and others in our research.
