Abstract: <span style="font-size:9.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt;mso-bidi-font-weight:bold" lang="EN-GB">Micropropagated plantlets of <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Boswellia serrata</i> Roxb. were biotized using an endophytic root fungus <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal"><span style="font-size:9.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt" lang="EN-GB">Piriformospora</span></i><span style="font-size:9.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:10.0pt" lang="EN-GB"> <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">indica</i> during hardening and acclimatization. Inoculation of micropropagated plantlets of <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">B. serrata</i> with <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">P. indica</i> was found beneficial both in term of overall growth and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">ex vitro</i> survival of plantlets. The fungus colonized 70% of plantlets and about 75% of such plantlets showed <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">ex vitro</i> survival. Significant increase in root growth, biomass and total chlorophyll contents in colonized plantlets was recorded. The study demonstrated the potential of <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">P. indica</i> as a biopriming agent for achieving better growth and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">ex vitro</i> survival of planlets.<span style="mso-bidi-font-weight:bold"> </span></span></span>
