Clonal propagation ofBougainvillea glabra ‘Magnifica’ through shoot apex culture
- 160 Downloads
Shoot apices ofBougainvillea glabra ‘Magnifica’ were induced to regenerate an average of ten shoots from their bases in response to BAP (0.5 mg/l) plus IAA (1.5 mg/l). All the isolated shoots from such cultures were rooted in a medium containing 0.1 mg/l each of IBA and 2,4,5-T and lacking BAP. Plantlets were then successfully grown in potted soil where they flowered normally.
