We present here a method for the in vitro propagation of Anthurium andraeanum cv. Fantasia through direct somatic embryogenesis. The embryos were directly formed at the cut end of most of the leaf explants when cultured on MS basal medium supplemented with N6-benzyladenine (BA) plus α-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA). MS basal media supplemented with BA (0.27 μM) and NAA (2.68 μM) induced maximum number of somatic embryos per leaf explant (15.33 ± 1.45) after 28 d of continuous culture. The… CONTINUE READING
