In the present study a successful procedure for rapid proliferation of shoots and seed germination of Lavendula officinalis Chaix was formulated. Shoot tip cultures were preferred as the pre-existing meristem easily develops into shoots while maintaining clonal fidelity. The superiority of BAP and IAA over Kn and IBA combination has been Investigated during the present study. The BAP + IAA combination showed more shoot proliferation then KN + IBA combination. Among the various: auxin cytokinin combinations, the best in terms of shoot multiplication were recorded in BAP (0.8mg/1) + IAA (0.4mg/1) after sixth days of inoculation.
In order to break the dormancy of the lavender seeds an efficient protocol was carried out under in-vitro laboratory conditions. Seeds of Lavendula officinalis subjected to scarification showed 6.25% germination in light and same percentage of seed germination was recorded in complete darkness. Seeds of Lavendula officinalis subjected to acid wash showed 12.5% germination in light. At dark treatment the seeds treated with sulphuric acid showed 6.25 % of germination. Seeds subjected to 48 hours chilling treatment showed 25% of germination in light. The dark chilling treatment showed 18.75% of germination. Best results (31.25%) were recorded in seeds treated with GA3 (200ppm) in ordinary light and 12.5% of seed germination was recorded in GA3 seeds kept in complete darkness.
Key words: Lavendula officinalis, Invitro propagation, Seed dormancy, Shoot tip.
