Abstract

Plant regeneration through somatic embryogenesis in different genotypes of Lilium-hybrids.

The possibility of inducing somatic embryogenesis in lilies was examined. For this purpose bulb-scales of 23 genotypes of various Lilium-hybrids were cultured on MS medium with either 4 mu M 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid or 4 mu M ppm 4-amino-3,5,6-trichloro-picolinic acid. Somatic embryos could be obtained from four genotypes having their genetic background in different sections of the genus Lilium. Some of the somatic embryos could be developed to plantlets, which could be adapted to greenhouse conditions successfully.
