Abstract

Both Cowania subintegra Kearney and C. stansburiana Torr. were successfully propagated in vitro. Shoot proliferation occurred from shoot tips of green-house grown C. subintegra using a modified Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 4.4 μM 6-benzyladenine and 0.5 μM indole butyric acid. Excised microshoots (1.5-3.0 cm long) of both species were rooted using a two-step process in which they were cultured for 3 days in a root initiation medium with 2.7 μM naphthaleneacetic acid and then transferred to a low nitrogen root elongation medium without auxin. Plantlets were successfully transferred to soilless potting mix.
