Abstract

Protocorms of Phaiaenopsis gigantea were cultured on Experimental Robert Ernst (XER) media supplemented with naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) in concentrations of 0.1 mg1-1 and 1 mg 1-1 and benzylaminopurine (BAP) in concentrations of 1 - 20 mg1-1. These were added to the basal media either singly orin combinations. A total of 13 treatments were produced. The media containing 0.1 mg1-1 NAA generally gave better result in terms of proliferation rate (16.07%) and the number of protocorm-like bodies (PLB) produced (0-6). Proliferation rate were reduced while shoot and leaf formations increased with increasing concentrations of BAP. Survival rate of protocorms were unusually low on all treatments with hormone free media (control) having the better survival rate among the treatments.
