Abstract: Axillary bud explants were induced to form shoots on Murashige and Skoog's (MS)1 basal medium. Best yield (9 shoots per explant) was obtained when the medium was supplemented with adenine sulphate (40 mg/L) and 6- benzylaminopurine (2.25 mg/L). The shoots were rooted on half strength MS basal medium supplemented with indole butyric acid (0.5 mg/L) and having thiamin -HCI (800 mg/L). Regenerated plantlets were successfully acclimatized. This is the first report of micropropagation in the genus Mussaenda without callus intervention.
