Abstract: This paper presents ecophysiological studies of tuberous roots of safed moosli (Chlorophytum borivilianum), a powerful aphrodisiac, for boosting its commercial production. Average weight of tuberous roots produced at the end of growing season from propagule root tubers soaked in 0.75% of potassium sulphate or a mixture (100 ppm) of equal quantities of IAA (indole acetic acid) and kinetin prior to sowing led to three times higher production than control. Pretreatment with potassium salts are only negligibly lower than those produced under very costly hormones, giving higher profits to safed moosli culivators.
