High efficiency adventitious shoot bud formation and plant regeneration from leaf explants of Dianthus chinensis L. Highest root formation was obtained when leaf explants were cultured on MS medium supplemented with 0.

The propagation rates via organogenesis can be much higher than axillary shoot proliferation Chun, Studies of Gerbera clonal propagation could also be efficiently adapted for other ornamental plants.

Successful in vitro propagation of ornamental plants is now being widely used in commercialization purposes. Micropropagation of gedbera plants-cut flowers. Gerbera jamesonii is also used in the preparation of traditional Chinese medicine, tu-er-feng, for curing cold and also for treating rheumatism Ye et al.

The studing of micropropagation of Gerbera sp via shoot tip explant. [2008]

Gerbera plantlets from in vitro cultivated capitulum explants. Percentage of callus and root formation per explants produced on MS medium supplemented with different hormones and concentration after 8 weeks in culture formed in these experiments were mainly green. In the present study, experiments were conducted to investigate organogenesis from various sources of Gerbera explants.


Percentage of shoot formation and number of shoots per explants produced on MS medium supplemented with different hormones and concentrations after 8 weeks in culture. Many scientists have tried to prove the totipotency concept, which is the ability of a single cell to form complete individual.

Addition of auxins together with cytokinins becomes essential for shoot induction and multiplication depending on the plant type. Lower concentration of TDZ promoted direct shoot regeneraration and higher concentrations promoted callus induction in Hagenia abyssinica Bruce J.

MICROPROPAGATION OF GERBERA | ICAR-Indian Institute of Horticultural Research

Shoots gerbdra roots of chrysanthemum were developed on a single medium containing 1. Springer-Verlag, New York, pp: A revised medium for rapid growth and bio assays with tobacco tissue cultures. Many temperate and tropical plants have been successfully propagated via tissue culture.

In vitro plantlet production from young capitulum explants of Gerbera jamesonii.

They are planted outdoors in full sun and useful gerbbera cut flowers, pot plant and also bedding plant. One of the most important techniques in plant improvements is via micro propagation.

Micropropagation of Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii Bolus).

Propagation Ornamental Plants, 4: Today, tissue culture technique is being used widely realizing its potentials in mass propagation and preservation of elite plants. This research was funded by Vote F Grant No. However, higher addition of auxin compared to cytokinin in the culture medium resulted in the inhibition of shoot formation. This species consists of many cultivars with variety of colors and shapes and they are popular commercial plants. The present study showed that only petiole explant produced optimum results for shoot formation.


However, regeneration of root was not observed when explants were cultured on MS medium supplemented with BAP and 2, 4-D. Most papers in the literature have focused on testing the influence of different types and combinations of plant growth regulators with the aim of improving the regeneration and multiplication stage of one or few cultivars.

Gerbera micropropagation.

Micropropagation of Woody Plants, Ahuja, M. However, in this study, at a very high concentration of BAP and other growth regulators, development and growth of shoots were inhibited.

Formation of callus from explants tissues involves the development of progressively more random planes of cell division, less frequent specialization of cells and loss of organized structures Thorpe, ; Wagley et al.

Bigot reported that the addition of g L -1 activated charcoal in the culture medium showed vigorous rooting from excised shoots of Begoniax hiemalis. Vardja and Vardja reported that, the addition of 10 mg L -1 BAP in culture medium increased the formation of adventitious buds of Gerbera at initiation and multiplication stage.

Petiole segment was identified as the best explant for regeneration of this species.
