Abstract: An in vitro micropropagation system has been developed for Terminalia bellerica Roxb., an important Indian medicinal plant. Nodal segments obtained from 15-d-old aseptically grown seedlings were used as explants. MS medium containing 1.5 mg L⁻¹ BAP was found most suitable for culture initiation. Although shoot multiplication was achieved on MS medium containing BAP and Kn, the maximum number of shoots was obtained with 1.5 mg L⁻¹ BAP. Best rooting response (60%) was observed on medium containing quarter strength MS salts, 0.6% agar and 0.1 mg L⁻¹ IBA. Plantlets were hardened initially in culture room conditions and then transferred to misthouse.
