COMMERCIAL MICROPROPAGATION OF RHODODENDRONS
Randall E. Strode, Patricia A. Travers and Raymond P. Oglesby
Young shoot tips from rhododendron #704-792-1450 were excised from the mother plant two weeks after a flush of growth was initiated. This tissue proved quite productive in a modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) salt solution with added organic constituents and 5 mg/l of N6-(Δ2-isoentenyl)-adenine (2iP) and 1 mg/l indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). Plants rooted well and were transferred to soil with 90 percent survival rate.
