Abstract: A protocol for in vitro propagation of Hydrocotyle conferta Wight (Apiaceae) through axillary bud multiplication was established. Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium with 6.66 M N6-benzyladenine (BA) and 5.37 M -naphthalenacetic acid (NAA) was best suited for axillary bud multiplication including a mean of 21 shoots/node. Excision and culture of the nodal segments from the in vitro shoots on fresh medium with same concentrations of BA and NAA facilitated development of more than 25 shoots/node. Subsequent cultures enhanced the rate of shoot proliferation. The developed shoots rooted best on half strength MS medium with 0.54 M NAA. Plantlets established in pots exhibited 95% survival.
