SummaryA new, rapid technique for the propagation of amaryllis (Hippeastrum spp. hybrids) by means of tissue culture is reported. Leaf bases, scapes, peduncles, inner bulb scales and ovaries were cultured successfully in vitro and plantlets were induced readily at various concentrations of growth regulators. Some plantlets also were produced in the absence of growth regulators. The most productive tissues for propagation were inverted scapes and peduncles, cultured in a modified Murashige and… 
In vitro bulbing for the propagation of Traubia modesta (Amaryllidaceae), a threatened plant endemic to Chile
TLDR
A propagation protocol was developed for the in vitro cultivation of vegetative organs for Traubia modesta and the results showed high contamination of the bulbs.
MICROPROPAGATION OF Hippeastrum sp.
SUMMARY Hippeastrum is a genus of the Amaryllidaceae family, whose species are highly appreciated for their ornamental and medicinal value due to their beauty and production of alkaloids of utility
Micropropagation of Hippeastrum hybridum
TLDR
Main objective of the study was to achieve a higher number of bulblet and among the applied treatments, NL medium containing 5.0 mg/L 2,4-D was the most desirable options and the best type of explant to culture the single scale explant was proposed.
Regeneration of bulblets from twin scales ofCrinum macowanii in vitro
Tissue culture techniques were applied to study the regeneration and growth of bulblets from bulb scale segments ofCrinum macowanii Bak. (bush- or march lily)in vitro. Shoots were induced on twin
In vitro morphogenesis from ovaries of Hippeastrum x hybridum
TLDR
Bulblet formation rates and number of bulblets were excellent when th~ concentrations of naphthyl acetic acid (NAA) and N"-benzyladenine (BA) were the same and somatic embryogenesis with high rate was investigated.
Factors affecting in vitro differentiation of explants from mature leaves ofArachis villosulicarpa hoehne
TLDR
Results indicate that shoot formation is increased when (a) light intensity is increased, (b) no segment of midvein is included in the explant, (c) explants are placed with the adaxial epidermis in contact with the medium, and (d) the size of explants is increased.
Breeding Aspects of Selected Ornamental Bulbous Crops
This article provides an overview of the origin, genetic diversity and methods and trends in breeding of selected ornamental geophytes (Lilium, Tulipa, Narcissus and Hippeastrum). The role of
In Vitro Morphogenesis frorn Ovaries ofHippeastrum x hybridum
In vitro morphogenensis from ovary-slices of Hippeastrum x hybridum cv. Hermitage was examined. Bulblet formation rates were high with I mgl-* and higher concentrations of naphthyl acetic acid (NAA)
SPECIAL-WORKSHOP DESIGNING A MICROPROPAGATION SYSTEM: WORKSHOP PRESENTATIONS FROM THE 1998 SIVB CONGRESS ON IN VITRO BIOLOGY
TLDR
This workshop was designed to assist micropropagators in determining directions to take and general tissue culture procedures to use when initiating culture of a new genotype and a series of interconnected strategies aimed at improving success in establishing contaminant-free plants in culture.

A new technique is reported here for the rapid propagation of Narcissus cultivars involving the induction of shoot and root apices from small pieces of leaf base tissue, inverted scape sections, and
Totipotency in Tissue Explants and Callus of Some Members of the Liliaceae, Iridaceae, and Amaryllidaceae
TLDR
Differences in responses of the twelve species tend to cut across the three families and no simple relation is evident between the natural rate of vegetative increase and the in vitro behaviour.
Organ formation from the excised bulb scales of Hippeastrum hybridum in vitro
TLDR
The excised bulb scales of amaryllis, cultured on Murashige and Skoog’s medium supplemented with combinations of NAA and kinetin, developed buds or roots or both together and the patterns of organogenesis were governed by the concentration of N AA in the medium.
