Passiflora foetida L. var Hispida, a Climber belonging to the family Passifloraceae has been micropropagated successfully by culturing nodal and internodal segments. The explants were cultured in MS basal medium augmented with 6 benzylaminopurine. Maximum percentage of shoot proliferation was achieved in MS basal medium fortified with 6 Benzylamino purine (4.44 :M). The maximum percentage of callus formation was achieved on MS medium augmented 1,vith 2, 4-Dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (4.52 :M). Maximum percentage of shoot proliferation from the internodal derived calli was achieved on MS medium supplemented with 6 Benzyl amino purine (2.221.1M and 4.44:M). The in vitro raised shootlets were transferred to MS medium fortified with IBA and highest percentage of rooting was observed in Indole-3- Butyric acid (4.90 :M).
