Somatic variation of Plumbago zeylanica in vitro

Author(s): Susmita Sahoo


Plumbago zeylanica is the most important medicinal plant of the genus Plumbago with manifold uses in folk/tribal medicine. Protocol for cultural conditions was established using nodal explants. Genetic uniformity of tissue-culture derived plants (TCD) was tested in a small field experiment using four characters. Low degree of developmental instability was noted in floral symmetry and lobe number of corolla, but no major variation. One unusually vigorous and apparently stress-tolerant plant in TCD population suggested possibility of using in vitro organogenesis for rapid regeneration and also for obtaining growth/physiological variant.
