IN VITRO ROOTING OF CLONAL PROPAGATED MINIATURE ROSE CULTIVARS
Shoots of seven miniature rose cultivars multiplied in vitro were rooted on different media solidified with agar. The influence of mineral salts reduction and/or activated charcoal addition on root initiation was investigated. Medium containing ½ of Murashige and Skoog (1962) salts concentration and activated charcoal at 1 g/1 was appropriate for all tested cultivars. On this medium 90–100% shoots regenerated roots within two weeks of culture.
