Table 3 Influence of IAA and IBA concentrations on in vitro rooting of shoots of G. tenuifolia

From: In vitro propagation and analysis of secondary metabolites in Glossogyne tenuifolia (Hsiang-Ju) - a medicinal plant native to Taiwan

Auxin (mg/L) * Concentration (mg/L) No. of shoots rooted (%)** Average No. of roots ** Callus formation Plants survival in greenhouse (%)
IAA 0.5 53.3 ± 9.1 b 2.4 ± 0.4 cd - 93.3
- 1.0 63.3 ± 8.8 b 3.3 ± 0.5 c - 100.0
- 3.0 100.0 ± 0.0 a 6.6 ± 0.7 b + 100.0
  5.0 93.3 ± 4.6 ab 9.5 ± 0.9 a ++ 96.7
IBA 0.05 3.3 ± 3.4 d 0.1 ± 0.1 e - 90.0
  0.1 16.7 ± 6.8 c 0.9 ± 0.3 de - 96.7
  0.5 83.3 ± 6.8 ab 6.3 ± 0.7 b + 96.7
  1.0 96.7 ± 3.3 ab 8.6 ± 0.7 a +++ 66.7
