Physical forms are the first impression by which the individuals are differentiated from each other in any organism and when it is applied with plants, phytomorphology comes to existence. Amid the various species of plants, somatic and sexual variations have been in core to make separate recognition. Sexual characters come to pompous position in case of diocious plants and Guduchi is one of them. They exhibit differences with physical forms in case of all parts as in aerial and underground viz., stem, leaf, aerial and underground roots etc. Veination is looped in leaves of male plants while it being incomplete in leaves of female plants, which becomes the characters to identify them separatly e. g. terminal marginal veination is looped in male plant unlike the female leaves where it is incomplete.
