Abstract: An efficient micropropagation method was developed for Heliotropium indicum, an Ayurvedic medicinal herb, using apical and axillary bud explants. The highest number of shoots (32.6 shoots/apical bud and 20.2 shoots/axillary bud) was yielded after 30 d of culture in the MS medium supplemented with Kn (1.0 mg L-1), BA (0.5 mg L-1) and IAA (0.05 mg L-1). The cluster of proliferated shoots elongated simultaneously on the same medium. High frequency of rooting (85%) was obtained in both apical and axillary bud derived shoots when transferred to half-strength MS medium supplemented with IBA (0.1 mg L-1). Rooted plants were hardened and successfully established in field conditions.
