Kalanduyung (Guazuma ulmifolia Lam.) is an herb plant from Central Borneo which people believe has many benefits, which one is curing pneumonia. To identify the antibacterial activity from the ethanol extract of Kalanduyung leaves to the Staphylococcus aureus growth. This research was experimental with posttest-only control group design. Ethanol extract of Kalanduyung leaves in

This data was statistically analyzed with One Way Anova. Ethanol extract of Kalanduyung leaves can inhibit Staphylococcus aureus with each inhibition zone diameter was 6.875 mm, 8.5 mm, 10.175 mm, and 14.925 mm. The ethanol extract of Kalanduyung leaves can inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.
