Abstract: A protocol is described for micropropagation of the starchy, tuberous, herbaceous twinner, Ceropegia hirsute Wt. & Arm. by in vitro culture of nodal segments. Of the cytokinins (BAP and Kn) and auxins (IAA, NAA, 2,4-D) evaluated as supplements individually and in combinations to Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium, BAP (7.5 µM) was the most effective in inducing axillary multiple shoots (5.7±0.7 shoots/culture). Root were induced to in vitro derived shoots on half-strength MS medium supplemented with IAA (2 µM) and sucrose (5%). in vitro plants were acclimatized and were successfully established in the soil.
