In vitro micrografting of Sterculia setigera Del.
An in vitro procedure micrografting of adult scions of Sterculia setigera was developed to overcome
low rooting in adult shoot. Axenic micro shoots of 0.5 cm length taken from adult trees as scions were
grafted on seedlings rootstocks cultured on MS medium. 100% success was obtained with micrografts
using adult apex as scions. Upon three cycles of in vitro micrografting, rejuvenation capacities of S.
setigera was recovered as shown by vigour, length and rooting of shoots grown from grafts cultured
on MS medium compared to seedlings. Successful micrografts were transferred to plastic pots
containing soil under mist house conditions before they were finally exposed to an external
environment. 80% of the plantlets survived in the nursery
