The present study was carried out to determine antimicrobial and radical scavenging activity of extract prepared from flowers of one native/wild orchid and one hybrid orchid (Orchidaceae family) namely Arundina graminifolia (D.Don) Hochr, and Renanthera Kalsom ‘Red Dragon’ (Renanthera philippinensis X Renanthera storeiei) bought from Jelita Orchid Farm. Antimicrobial and radical scavenging activity of orchid extracts was determined by disk-diffusion agar and DPPH free radical scavenging activity respectively. From the antimicrobial test conducted, extract of wild orchid with chloroform showing the highest inhibition zone than others extracts. The chloroform extract of wild orchid exhibited stronger radical scavenging activity when compared to other orchid extracts.
