In vitro Axillary Mass Multiplication of Trichodesma indicum
Keywords:In vitro propagation, Acclimatization, PGRs, Viability
In vitro mass propagation has been regarded as a significant technique for mass propagation of plantlets in a short period and utilization of cell suspension cultures for metabolite generation. It has helped in biodiversity conservation of many endemic plants since it provides a way for the utilization of plant germplasm without destroying natural habitats. Trichodesma indicum is one of the most significant medicinal herbs and desired for many formulations in the medical sector. Its overexploitation from natural habitats may be a threat to its diversity. The authors have proposed an optimized protocol for plantlet generation with greater viability potential and could be used to mass propagate plants in a short period. It was evident from the study that variable combinations of plant growth regulators and sucrose were able to alter the multiplication potential of axillary buds and it could be enhanced with the proper combination. © 2022 iGlobal Research and Publishing Foundation.
