    Rauvolfia serpentina has great benefits viewed from both economic and medical perspectives, but it seems that there is lack of efforts to save the species from extinction. The root of R. serpentina contains more than 50 different kinds of alkaloids. These alkaloids have been proved to have benefited in cure a lot of disease. R. serpentina is an endangered species that lives in a forest, so action to save the species must be done immediately. These research is aim to find the scientific foundation about the compatibility of grafting between R. serpentine and R. verticilata with morphological and anatomical observations. The methods used in this research are including side grafting method and approach grafting method. The grafting between Rauvolfia Serpentina and Rauvolfia verticilata was compatible. The approach side grafting method was better than the side grafting method. The level of shading that conducive for the union formation was 50 % - 75 % with humidity level of 80 % - 90 % and air temperature was 28 °C - 26 °C Key words: Grafting, Compatibility, R.serpentina; R. verticilata
