The present investigation was made to study the effect of different concentrations of sodium chloride on the growth and mineral constituents in different parts of Clerodendron inerme. The plant and could survive a wide range of 100-1000 mM of NaCl. The upper limit for the survival of Clerodendron inerme was 500 mM NaCl. However, favourable growth response by seedlings was confined to 200 mM NaCl. The morphological parameters such as shoot and length, number of leaves, total leaf area, fresh and dry mass and mineral constituents such as sodium, potassium and calcium were assessed.
