Standardization of a crude medication is necessary to determine the authenticity, consistency, and effectiveness of herbal medicines. Lasia spinosa (L) Thwaites belongs to Araceae. Ethanomedicinally, the entire plant used in folklore medicine for many medical uses such as cancer, constipation and rheumatism. The critical issue with herbal drug standardization is lack of adequate plant source recognition. Therefore, quality assurance criteria must be defined using pharmacognostic and phytochemical assessment. The present research investigated pharmacognostic, physicochemical, fluorescence and phytochemical parameters of the different plant parts. Such approaches are valuable tools to help complement the knowledge with its standardization and recognition and further work in the Ayurveda medicine system.
