  • A rapid propagation protocol was establish for thehighly endangered Aloe polyphylla (Schönland ex Pillans). Seed was germinated in vitro on Murashige & Skoog 1962 medium [6] with or without sucrose. Plantlets were cultured onmedium containing benzyladenine only, or a combinationof BA and NAA. After initial problems with browning,the explants rapidly formed axillary and adventitiousbuds. Maximal shoot formation was obtained on MSmedium containing 1.0 mg l−1 BA. Some shootsrooted spontaneously on… CONTINUE READING
