Abstract: A micropropagation protocol has been developed for <i style="">Sauropus androgynus</i> (L.) Merr. using uninodal explants in Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with various concentrations of cytokinins, benzyl adenine (BA) and kinetin (Kn). Shoot induction was observed in 1.0 mg/L BA and 0.1 mg/L Kn after 25 d and more number of shoots was achieved in shoot induction medium. Rooting was induced from shoots in MS medium supplemented with various concentrations of indole 3-butyric acid (IBA) and naphthalene acetic acid (NAA). All the shoots were rooted in 0.5 mg/L IBA and 0.2 mg/L NAA after 25 d. Rooted plants were transferred to soil and successfully acclimatized.
