  • Silicon (Si) is known to have beneficial effects on plants especially in monocots such as rice, wheat, and sugarcane. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of Si against NaCl on axillary shoot proliferation and shoot growth of in vitro of Salvia splendens ‘Hot Jazz’, one of the important floricultural plants. In vitro study was chosen because in such controlled environment the mechanism of Si alleviation can be clearly studied without any external hindrance. Nodal explants have… CONTINUE READING
