Production of plantlets from the ovary wall of Haworthia turgida var. pallidifolia

  • Shyamal K. Majumdar
Short Communication


In a modified culture medium, excised ovaries of Haworthia turgida var. pallidifolia can be grown to the normal looking capsules; the ovary wall can produce leafy shoots and callus tissue in this medium. The callus tissue in turn is found to differentiate into plantlets.
