A mass in vitro propagation system for Bacopa monniera (L.) Wettst. (Scrophulariaceae), a medicinally important plant, has been developed. A range of cytokinins have been investigated for multiple shoot induction with node, internode and leaf explants. Of the four cytokinins (6-benzyladenine, thidiazuron, kinetin and 2-isopentenyladenine) tested thidiazuron (6.8 μM) and 6-benzyladenine (8.9 μM) proved superior to other treatments. Optimum adventitious shoot buds induction occurred at 6.8 μM… CONTINUE READING
