Regeneration of plantlets from leaf and petiole explants of Pelargonium x hortorum

  title={Regeneration of plantlets from leaf and petiole explants of Pelargonium x hortorum},
  author={Pradeep Kumar Agarwal and Rajinder Singh Ranu},
  journal={In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology - Plant},
The in vitro plant regeneration potential of vegetatively propagated geraniums (Pelargonium x hortorum) has been investigated. Using various combinations of growth regulators and a choice of different explants, a regeneration protocol has been developed to raise in vitro plantlets from young petiole and leaf explants from three different cultivars of geraniums. In all three cultivars, very young petiole explants exhibited a higher regeneration potential as compared with leaf explants… CONTINUE READING
