Intensified vegetative multiplication of Dracaena deremensis

, : Intensified vegetative multiplication of Dracaena deremensis. Acta Horticulturae (54): 83-92

Stem sections of the variegated D. deremensis Warnecki were sterilized and cut into explants about 1 cm2 either with or without a dormant eye. They were cultured on a modified Murashige and Skoog's medium with the addition of different auxins and cytokinins. The best callus formation was obtained using explants with a dormant eye. About 90% of the plantlets produced resembled the parent plant and 10% showed a modified chimeral leaf pattern.
