Asymbiotic seed germination and seedling development in Coelogyne punctulata and Aerides multiflorum



Asymbiotic seed germination and seedling development in Coelogyne punctulata and Aerides multiflorum



Indian Forester 113(8): 574-577



Both species are rare epiphytic orchids found in the tropical forests of Meghalaya. Seeds were cultured on Knudson's C medium (supplemented with 100 g ripe banana pulp/litre and adjusted to pH 5.0) at 25 + 2 degrees C in the dark until they reached the protocorm stage when they were illuminated (1300 lux) for 12 h/day. Seed germination at 90 days of culture was 81.4% for C.punctulata and 60.8% for A. multiflorum.
