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.
