Agave victoriae-reginae somatic embryos were produced through a callus phase from seedling stem segments cultured on MS medium. The optimal treatment was MS medium with 2.26 μM 2,4-D. Multiple shoot regeneration was induced from axillary buds from stem segments cultured on MS medium with 2.2–4.4 μM BA. Effect of MS and modified MS medium with 50%(More)

Agave victoriae-reginae is an endemic of the Chihuahuan Desert of northern Mexico that is endangered by collection for the ornamental trade. We examined(More)
