Abstract: Rapid multiplication of C. magna, a medicinal plant, was achieved by culturing nodal segments on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with sucrose (3%) and different concentrations of benzyl amino purine (BAP). Nodal segments cultured on MS medium supplemented with 8.8 µM of BAP produced multiple shoots (4.4+0.09) with maximum length (63.2+0.92 mm). Rooting of the excised shoots cultured on 9.84 µM of IBA in combination with 0.54 µM of NAA in half strength MS medium was found suitable. Rooted plants established with 68% success rate in pots after hardening.
