Araceae is one of the most diversified families of monocots which constitute a very natural and easy recognized group and exhibit great diversity in all morphological attributes and habitat preferences. It shows Profound differences in habitat preferences, growth pattern, phenology and adaptive modifications for effective pollination. The members of the family present remarkable variation in form and colour of spathe and appendages, male and female flowers and sexuality. During the study field visits were made to collect and study the Aroid Morphology. Most of the Aroids which were collected and introduced in botanical garden of the department are; Pothas scandens Carl Linnaeus, Pistia stratiotes Carl. Linnaeus, Alocasia indica Schott, Philodendron scandens Schott. The study revealed that these members of Araceae shows definet variation with reference to vegetative, blooming time and spadix architecture. During one year survey of Aroids, critical observations were made on habitats, growth pattern, phenology and spadix architecture.
