This study aims to determine the extract can be prevent the growing of the Candida albicans, and to determine the effective concentration to prevent the growing of the fungus Candida albicans. This study is an experimental research with a completely randomized design. Bes trew diffusion method by a concentration of 25%, 50%, 75%, 100% and metronidazol liquid is used to determine the zone diameter inhibition in the five treatment and five replications. Inhibition zone diameter data were analyzed statistically ANOVA and Duncen Multiple Range Test (DMRT). The concentration stratified of extract effect on the zone diameter growth of Candida albicans.
