Isolation of Bacteria from the Petals and Pollen in Euphorbia sp.
Euphorbia sp. The genus Euphorbia generates caustic lattices, which constitute a health
hazard to humans and livestock. It is one among the outdoor plants, which has enormous
characteristic features. The major objective of this paper is to isolate the major bacteria
present in the pollen and petal region of Euphorbia flower. After the isolation and
preliminary identification of the pollen and petal swabbed plates, it was evident that out of
the 17 colonies formed after incubation, the major morphological characteristic of the colony
was examined and pure cultured, after the biochemical test it was estimated as Bacillus sp. to
confirm starch hydrolysis test was carried out and hence showed zone of clearance.
