    • Abstract


      Embryo callus and callus of rootstocks ofin vitro-raised seedlings ofElettaria cardamomum were grown on MS medium supplemented with CW+2, 4−D+BAP. Differentiation of shoot buds, roots and leaves leading to the development of plantlets could be induced in callus by withdrawing 2, 4−D or substituting it by IAA or NAA in low concentrations.
