Abstract

Rose (Rosa hybrida L.) plants were micropropagated by axillary shoot proliferation method. Maximum number of microshoots per shoot tip expiant were obtained on MS medium supplemented with 5 to 10 µM thidiazuron (TDZ). The microshoots formed rooted plants on MS hormone-free medium. No difference in the rooting of microshoots produced on medium containing TDZ or $N^6-benzyladenine$ was observed. The regenerated plants were successfully transplanted to the field and appeared similar to the parent plant in morphologic features.
