In two selected varieties of exotic ornamental plants, Calathea crotalifera, an effective protocol was developed for micropropagation. The effects of various sterilisation techniques, type of explant, and the combination and concentration of plant growth regulators on the induction of shoots were investigated. When treated with a combination of 30 percent (v / v) NaOCl, 70 percent (v / v ) ethanol, and 0.3 percent (w / v) HgCl2, axillary shoot buds sprouted from rhizomes in soil-free conditions showed a high … Continue reading “Studies on Micropropagation of an Exotic Ornamental Plant, Calathea crotalifera, for Production of High Quality Plantlets”
