This study reports a protocol for successful micropropagation of Penthorum chinense using nodal explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 6-benzyladenine (BA) or kinetin (Kn). The presence of BA promoted a higher rate of shoot multiplication than Kn. Maximum multiple shoot formation was observed in 59.2% of nodal explants cultured on MS medium supplemented with 2.0 mg l−1 BA after 6 wk. After subculture for 4 wk, the maximum number of shoots (6.4) was obtained on a medium… CONTINUE READING
