In vitro cultured carnivorous plants were grown on a hormone-free medium. They produced the following naphthoquinones: Dionaea muscipula (plumbagin: 5.3%), Drosera rotundifolia (7-methyljuglone: 0.6%), D. binata (plumbagin: 1.4%), and D. capensis (7-methyljuglone: 0.5%). A red, slow-growing suspension culture of D. muscipula was maintained in a modified McCowns Woody Plant (McC) medium and produced plumbagin (2.59%) after 30 days growth. A suspension culture of D. rotundifolia grew slowly as… CONTINUE READING
