ABSTRACT

Callus cultures were initiated from axillary shoots on Murashige and Skoog (MS) (1962) medium supplemented with 2,4-D, NAA, and Kn. The highest frequency (85.00%) of organogenic callus induction was observed in MS medium containing 1.0 mg l G 1 NAA and 2.0 mg l G 1 Kn. Development of adventitious shoots occurred when the calli were subcultured in MS medium supplemented in the BAP, NAA, IAA and Kn. Shoots differentiated best (86.00%) from axillary shoot derived callus on MS medium containing 1.0 mg l G 1 NAA and 2.5 mg l G 1 Kn. Regenerated shoots rooted best in MS supplemented in the IBA and Kn. Plantlets were transferred to pots containing sand and soil mixture, acclimatized in a culture room and finally rooted plants were transferred to soil.
