Tubers of safed musli (Chlorophytum borivilianum) were immersed in three different concentrations of gibberellic acid (GA3) or humic acid (HA) prior to planting. The highest concentration of GA3 (20 mg L(-1)) and all concentrations of HA (5, 10, and 15%) appeared to hasten tuber sprouting and promote uniform sprouting pattern. The use of 20 mg L(-1) GA3 or(More)
BACKGROUND Chlorophytum borivilianum is an industrially valued medicinal crop. Propagation through seeds is not feasible because of low germination percentage and long dormancy period. Therefore, callus culture and plant regeneration can be an alternative to improve this crop production. Also, callus can serve as an alternative source of bioactive(More)
Safed musli (Chlorophytum borivilianum Santapau & R.R.Fern.) is a medicinal herb valued for its tuberous roots that contain several bioactive compounds. Conventionally, safed musli tubers are harvested for secondary metabolites 9 mo after planting. Alternatively, in vitro culture can be used for mass production and to shorten the time required to produce(More)
