Abstract

Effect of plant growth regulators on induction of adventitious roots from different explants of Rivina humilis L.

Abstract

An efficient reproducible protocol for induction of adventitious roots from different explants of Rivina humilis L. has been developed. The explants cultured on MS and B5 media with different concentrations of auxins with 2.0 mg/L gibberellin as constant. The explants of Rivina humilis L. were responded uniquely with specific concentrations of auxins. However high frequency of adventitious root induction was found on B5 media than MS media. Petiole explants on B5 with GA3 (2.0 mg/L)+IAA (2.0 mg/L), root explants on B5 with GA3(2.0 mg/L)+NAA (5.0 mg/L) and stem callus on B5 with GA3 (2.0 mg/L)+2,4-D (2.0 mg/L) showed high frequency of adventitious root formation. NAA (5.0 mg/L) with GA3 (2.0 mg/L) found suitable to induce high frequency of adventitious roots from all explants used in the present study.
