Allium regelianum

Improving the efficiency of Allium regelianum A. Becker clonal micropropagation

An effective protocol for clonal micropropagation of Allium regelianum was optimized, including three following steps. In the first step bulbs-donors of explants were obtained from ripe seeds; in the second step – propagation under effects of exogenous cytokinins; and in the third step – final bulblets formation on the hormone-free medium. The second and the third steps may be repeated more than once. The importance of apex destruction for micropropagation was demonstrated.
