In vitro culture of ornamental ferns

In vitro culture of ornamental ferns

Plant cell tissue and organ culture 73(1)

Increasing demand for ferns means that more knowledge of propagation techniques be developed to guarantee the continuous supply of these plants from commercial ornamental companies. In vitro tissue culture techniques show a certain promise with respect to a future increase in production. This review summarises all the research that has been conducted with ornamental ferns using in vitro techniques at different phases in their life cycle, starting from spores, to gametophytes and sporophytes. Nutritional, environmental and other factors affecting growth and development in each phase of the life cycle of the fern are discussed, highlighting some protocols that enhance their morphogenic and reproductive capacity.
