Abstract: Brassinosteroids are new class of phytohormones and now considered as the sixth group of hormones in plants. They influence varied growth and developmental processes such as growth, germination of seeds, rhizogenesis, flowering, senescence and abscission and they are considered as plant hormones with pleiotropic effects. The present paper emphasizes the importance of 28-homobrassinolide and 24-epibrassinolide in the root formation and root growth in case of coleus [Plectranthus forskohlii (Willd.) Briq.]. The study revealed the ability of brassinosteroids in increasing the root formation and root growth of treated cuttings over control.
