Partial elimination of virus from doubly infected orchids by meristem explant culture


Acta Horticulturae (36): 229-233
Partial elimination of virus from doubly infected orchids by meristem explant culture
Tissue size influenced survival of meristem explants of double virus-infected Laeliocattleya areca Titanic. Little or no survival resulted when tissue pieces were less than 0.5 mm in height. Tissue pieces 0.5 to 1.0 mm high showed a marked increase in survival but remained infected. Grafting of tissue pieces onto topped healthy mericlones or to callus tissue may provide a successful approach to growing small explants.
