The influence of IBA ( beta -indolyl-butyric acid) on the propagation of kola (Cola nitida (Vent) Schott & Endl.) by leaf-bud cuttings

Acta Horticulturae (49): 167-174

The influence of IBA ( beta -indolyl-butyric acid) on the propagation of kola (Cola nitida (Vent) Schott & Endl.) by leaf-bud cuttings

Leaf-bud cuttings from 4-month-old flushes of mature trees and from well-ripened zones of young seedlings rooted successfully. The percentage of successfully rooted leaf buds and the number and length of roots were improved by a 24-h dip in dilute IBA after callus formation, and the time to rooting was reduced from 6 to 4 weeks. There was no advantage in incorporating naphthoxyacetic acid with the IBA and prior treatment with phenylacetic acid and sucrose did not improve the effect of IBA.

Meiosis was normal in C. acuminata but some chromosome pairing abnormalities were observed in C. nitida and in the hybrid (occurrence of univalents and trivalents). The parental species diff...
