In vitro Propagation of Solanum capsicoides All. An Important Therapeutic Agent 'Kantakari'
Keywords:Solanum capsicoides, Propagation, Therapeutic agent
Shoot tip explants from in vitro germinated seedlings of Solanum capsicoides All. inoculated on MS containing 2 mg/l BA produced maximum shoot induction response (26 shoots per explant). Rooting of the microshoots (19.4 roots per explant) was obtained better in half strength of MS supplemented with NAA (0.5 mg/l). Well rooted plantlets were successfully hardened with 80 per cent survival rate.
