Regeneration of plants by caulogenesis of anther derived callus of Streptocarpus X hybridus ‘Concorde’ was obtained on MS basal medium with 2.0 mg/l NAA and 0.5 mg/l BAP. All regenerated plants were diploid and of somatic cell origin as determined by chromosome counts, flower color and morphological similarity to the anther donor plant, and flower color segregation among progeny of anther-derived plants. Variation expressed as deformed and dwarfed transient morphology was observed in 2 anther… CONTINUE READING
