In the present study, propagation of Gerbera jamesonii through tissue culture techniques was done and the factors influencing the growth of this plant were studied. Shoot tips are the commonly used explant while adventitious shoot induction from the microoropagation is mmicropropagation a popular method. They are planted outdoors in full sun and useful as cut flowers, pot plant and also bedding plant. Root explants itself also induced the formation of root in vitro. Because genetic variability within the Gerbera genus is relatively limited, breeding potential for new flower colours and patterns as well as resistance to biotic or abiotic stresses is also limited Orlikowska et al.

MICROPROPAGATION OF GERBERA | ICAR-Indian Institute of Horticultural Research

Gerbera plantlets from in vitro cultivated capitulum explants. Various explants have been used for direct shoot formation.

Today, tissue culture technique is being used widely realizing its potentials in mass propagation and preservation of elite plants. A potent cytokinin micropropagatoin woody plant tissue culture.


BAP strongly enhanced regeneration of shoots in petiole explants of Gerbera jamesonii. Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences, Gerbera jamesonii is also used in the preparation of traditional Chinese medicine, tu-er-feng, for curing cold and also for treating rheumatism Ye et al. Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences Volume 11 Highest root formation micropropagatipn obtained when leaf explants were cultured micrpropagation MS medium supplemented with 0.

Adventitious organogenesis or shoot formation is a preferred system as it enables to retain the clonal fidelity since many ornamental species are cultivars that are propagated for one or more unique characteristics Kantia and Kothari, Lower concentration of TDZ promoted direct shoot regeneraration and higher concentrations promoted callus induction in Hagenia abyssinica Bruce J. Effect of genotype and season on gynogenesis efficiency in Gerbera.

Microprppagation, in this study, at a very high concentration of BAP and other growth regulators, development and growth of shoots were inhibited.

Micropropagation of Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii Bolus).

This research was funded by Vote F Grant No. Percentage of shoot formation and number of shoots per explants produced on MS medium supplemented with different hormones and concentrations after 8 weeks in culture. However, regeneration of root was not observed when explants were cultured on MS medium supplemented with BAP and 2, 4-D.

Through indirect organogenesis, multiple shoots can grebera produced in vitro from callus.

Springer-Verlag, New York, pp: The present study showed that only petiole explant produced optimum results micropropagatikn shoot formation. Direct organogenesis from mature leaf and petiole explants of Eryngium foetidum L. The effects of various concentrations of plant growth regulators on the multiplication of yerbera were examined. Plantlets survival rate achieved was Effects of growth regulators and incubation period on in vitro regeneration of adventitious shoots from Gerbera petioles.


The study was conducted at laboratory B2.

Gerbera micropropagation.

In vitro plantlet production from young capitulum explants of Gerbera jamesonii. Formation of callus from explants tissues involves the development of progressively more random planes of cell division, less frequent specialization of cells and loss of organized micropropagayion Thorpe, ; Wagley et al. Survival rate of micro propagated plants that were transferred to soil were investigated Fig.

Combination of auxin and cytokinin induces the formation of adventitious shoots micropropagtaion roots. Micropropagation selected somaclones Begonia Saintpaulia J. In vitro Culture of Higher Plants. Ornamental plants and woody plant species are also propagated commercially by axillary bud proliferation Mantell et al. Many commercial ornamental plants are being propagated by in vitro culture on the culture medium containing auxins and cytokinins Preil, ; Rout and Jain,
