    Traditional medicine also known as indigenous or folk medicine comprises medical knowledge systems that developed generations with in various societies before the era of modern medicine. In the present study deals with the phytochemical, antibacterial activity and GC-MS analysis of the medicinal plant Kalanchoe floribunda Wight & Arn. Qualitative phytochemical analysis of these plants confirms the presence of various secondary metabolites like alkaloids, phenols, proteins, saponins, sterols. Antibacterial activity of Kalanchoe floribunda leaf extracts (Ethyl acetate, Ethanol and Distilled Water) on pathogenic bacterial strains (Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella oxytoca, Proteus mirabilis and Salmonella typhi) was tested by agar well diffusion method. Ethyl acetate leaves were also should maximum inhibition on Enterobacter aerogenes (10mm) and Klebsiella oxytoca (10mm). Seven compounds were identified in the ethyl acetate extract of Kalanchoe floribunda by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis.
