Journal Highlights

A submerged culture system for rapid micropropagation of an ornamental aquarium plant ‘Amazon sword’   The production of aquarium plants via tissue culture has emerged as a rising industry all over the world. Amazon sword plant (Echinodorus ‘Indian Red’) is an underwater aquatic plant, very popular among aquarium hobbyists worldwide, and currently retails in the online market for $4.59–$14.95 per plant. An efficient method for in vitro propagation and plantlet acclimatization of this ornamental aquarium plant was developed. In vitro plants were cultured in submerged conditions in a solid-liquid bilayer medium, the culture-vessels containing plant implanted in the solid...
