In vitro developmental peculiarities of Spathiphyllum
By M. M. Antofie and A. Brezeanu     (Buy)


A micropropagation protocol for spathiphyllum is described in this article. The original material started from meristem culture and a dynamic of the second to the fourth multiplication stages was analyzed. An exponential growth with a correlation index of R2 = 0.9916 was observed. The multiplication index was positively influenced by the incorporation into the culture medium of BAP (1 mg/D and IAA (0.1 mg/D which gave 26.6 new shoots/explant. A culture medium supplemented only with auxin did not induce callus formation and when only cytokinin was used callusogenesis was positively influenced and rooting processes were not observed.
