Abstract

Shoot proliferation has been achieved in Garcinia mangostana L. using seed explants. Maximum mean number of shoots per explant (16.8) was obtained from cultures on Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 40 mM 6- benzyladenine, and 2.5 mM α-naphthaleneacetic acid and kept at 30 °C under an 8 hour photoperiod. Cultures on the same medium but supplemented with 2 g l-1 activated charcoal produced fewer shoots. However, growth of these shoots was more organized and 75% rooting was obtained. Woody Plant Medium was not a suitable medium for shoot proliferation. Ex vitro establishment was best obtained on planting medium consisting of sand, soil and organic material (3:2:1).
