Immature inflorescences of Amaranthus paniculatus were used as explants for in vitro culture studies. When placed on a medium supplemented with 3–6 mg/l kinetin, explants developed into secondary inflorescences. Leaves and shoots developed following culture of inflorescence tissue on media containing 8–15 mg/l kinetin or 5–10 mg/l BAP. These shoots when subcultured on MS medium supplemented with 12 mg/l kinetin + 15% coconut milk, formed roots. These rooted plantlets later flowered in vitro.
