Table 1 The influence of IBA and sucrose concentrations on rooting of in vitro shoots in Saussurea involucrata Kar. et Kir

From: In vitro culture and production of syringin and rutin in Saussurea involucrata (Kar. et Kir.) – an endangered medicinal plant

IBA (mg/L−1)* Sucrose % % of shoots rooted** Av. no. of roots/explant** Av. root length (cm)** Av. shoot height (cm)**
0.1 1.5 100a 3.57abc 5.8a 4.50bc
3.0 100a 2.71a 5.6a 3.57ab
0.5 1.5 79c 3.00ab 4.3ab 4.87a
3.0 93a 3.92abc 5.7ab 4.14abc

  1. *1/2X MSBM: Murashige and Skoog ([1962]) basal medium (salts and vitamins), supplemented with 3 % sucrose, 0.9 % agar, pH 5.7 ± 0.1. Data were recorded after 7 weeks of culture. Shoots were cultured on IBA containing medim for 1 week and then transferred to PGR free MSBM containing 1.5 % or 3 % sucrose and 0.9 % agar and further incubation for 6 weeks, respectively
  2. **Each treatment had thirty explants with three replicates. Means followed by the same letter (a,b,c) of a column are not significantly different at 5 % level by least significant difference (LSD) test
