Emerging buds of rhizome of Alpinia galanga Willd produced shoots and roots simultaneously when cultured in MS medium supplemented with kinetin 3.0 mg l-1. Each explanted shoot bud produced 8 shoots in average and roots simultaneously within 8 weeks. Shoot proliferation could be continued even after a year by transferring each divided shoot explant to the same medium. Regenerated plantlets could be sucessfully transferred to soil where they grew well within 10–12 weeks with 80% survivality.
