<p>Plants are considered as one of the greatest assets in the field of Indian Science of Medicine called Ayurveda. Some plants have its medicinal values apart from serving as the source of food. The innovation in the allopathic medicines has degraded the significance of these therapeutic plants. People failed to have their medications at their door step instead went behind the fastest cure unaware of its side effects. One among the reasons is the lack of knowledge about identifying medicinal plants among the normal ones. So, a Vision based approach is being employed to create an automated system which identifies the plants and provides its medicinal values thus helping even a common man to be aware of the medicinal plants around them. This paper discusses about the formation of the feature set which is the important step in recognizing any plant species.</p>
