Direct rooting from leaf explants of Withania somnifera was achieved on half strength Murashige and Skoog's medium supplemented with 15 g l-p# sucrose, and different concentrations of growth regulators. Basal medium supplemented with 2.85 oM indoleacetic acid and 9.85 oM indolebutyric acid achieved maximum number of roots with 100% response. The roots were cultured on MS liquid medium for the establishment of root-organ culture with the same plant growth regulators and incubated on an orbital shaker at 80 rpm at 25 pl 2 pC. A root biomass of 6.15 pl 0.17 g was obtained after 5 weeks. When 1 g roots were inoculated to 2.5 l bubble column reactor, 47 g roots were obtained after 6 weeks. The concentration of alkaloids was increased as compared to field grown roots. The maximum concentration of withanolides (10 mg g-p# dry weight) was obtained in the bioreactor.
