Abstract: Coleus forskohlli Briq., an endangered medicinal plant, has been successfully micropropagated under in vitro conditions. Best adventitious shoots were developed in solid Murashige and Skoog’s medium supplemented with 1.5 mg L-l 6-benzylaminopurine, while best rhizogenesis was achieved without growth regulator. The second event of success was in vitro conservation of the species by slow growth technique employing osmotic regulators (sorbitol and mannitol). 3 M mannitol showed best performance for reducing growth. This study elucidated an efficient method of ex situ conservation of germplasm and sustainable management of this medicinally important plant.
