Abstract

The experiment was carried out in the Microbiology Department laboratory- Supreme Board of Drugs and Medical Appliances- Aden/ Yemen during the period July February, March and April 2023. To find out the effectiveness of four concentrations of water extracts of Nerium oleander leaves, 5, 10, 15, and 20%, on the fungus Aspergillus niger, the Nerium oleander leaf extract with a concentration of 20% was the most effective. In a control, the fungus colony growth diameter reached 90 mm after 7 days of incubation. In another experiment, testing the effect of water extracts of Mentha longifolia leaves on the same fungus at the same concentrations (5, 10, 15, 20%). At the highest effective concentration of 20%, the fungus colony growth diameter did not exceed 38 mm, and the percentage of inhibition reached 57.7% compared to the control, in which the fungus colony growth diameter reached 90 mm after 7 days of incubation.
