 en Screening for propagation suitability in vitro of different Cyclamen check for this species in other resources species
Seyring, M.; Ewald, A.; Mueller, A. & Haensch, K.-T.

Abstract

In the present study we examined the possibility of propagating different Cyclamen check for this species in other resources species ( C. africanum check for this species in other resources Boiss. and Reut., C. cilicium check for this species in other resources Boiss. and Heldr., C. coum check for this species in other resources Mill., C. hederifolium check for this species in other resources Ait., C. persicum check for this species in other resources Mill., C. purpurascens check for this species in other resources Mill.) including some of their subspecies and cultivars in vitro using explants of adult plants. For this purpose two protocols have been applied to eleven genotypes combined with mostly four explant types (placentas with ovules, leaves, petioles and peduncles). The use of these protocols has given rise to either somatic embryo-like structures and/or adventitious shoots in all genotypes. This way it was possible to propagate each of the examined genotypes in vitro using explants of adult plants in a time less than one year. These results may be used in breeding and propagation of Cyclamen as an ornamental plant and as a medicinal plant.
