Abstract

Regeneration from leaf explants of Withania somnifera (L.) for mass propagation was studied on Murashige and Skoog’s medium supplemented with Kinetin (Kn) and 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) alone or in combination. Shoot buds were induced from the midrib on the abaxial side in presence of Kn and BAP (4 µM). These shoot buds developed into shoots on the same medium. Rooting of these shoots was achieved in 0.5 µM of IBA.
