Abstract

Attempts were made to grow isolated roots of 30 species of dicotyledonous plants in vitro. Eighteen were grown successfully, while 12 proved refractory to the treatments used. Although roots of all species of dicotyledons can probably be grown under proper conditions, it appears that these conditions will, in many cases, differ widely. Apparently no generalizations can be drawn as regards the requirements of isolated roots which will apply satisfactorily to all species.
