Shoot cultures of Aglaonema cv. Silver Queen were multiplied in vitro on modified Murashige and Skoog medium containing different concentrations of BA i.e. 3.3, 6.65, 13.3 and 26.6 μM. The greatest axillary branching was obtained at 13.3 and 26.6 μM. Microcuttings were tested for rooting on media containing NAA, IAA, and IBA. The best quality of roots and the highest plant survival in soil was found at 49.2 μM IBA in combination with 1.4 μM IAA. Microcuttings derived from media of the highest BA concentration rooted worse - 34.8% - than those at BA 6.65 μM - 94.3% of rooted shoots.
