TISSUE CULTURE STUDY OF IXORA PARVIFLORA VAHL.- A WOODY ORNAMENTAL SHRUBP.C.THAKUR AND HARSH KUMAR
Ixora parviflora Vahl. is an ornamental shrub cultivated in gardens for white cluster of flowers and evergreen foliage. It is used in whooping cough and anaemia. Its tissue culture study was undertaken to search out micropropagation method. Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium with 0.5-1.0 mg L-16-furfuryI amino purine (KIN) plus 1.0-2.0 mg L-I a-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) induced normal growth in cultured shoot apex. Calli were produced from shoot apex, leaf, internode and node explants when cultured on different concentrations of KIN and NAA or 2,4-D. Medium with KIN (0.5-2.0 mg L-1) and NAA (1.0-2.0 mg L-1) induced normal growth in cultured floral bud. Best proliferation of roots was achieved when internodal explants were cultured on NAA (1.5 mg L-)
