A protocol for micropropagation of Arbutus andrachne from seeds was developed. Results indicated that none of the seeds cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium, with or without plant growth regulators (PGRs), germinated. Seeds soaked in 250 mg l−1 gibberellic acid (GA3) at 4°C for 3 days, then cultured on water-agar medium containing 2.0 mg l−1 GA3 exhibited 80–100% germination and developed into usable seedlings. Shoot proliferation was tested on MS or B5 medium containing different… CONTINUE READING
