Species Referenced: Hibiscus moscheutos (Crimson-eyed rose-mallow),
AbstractEvaluates methods of propagating Hibiscus moscheutos via tissue culture. Nodal segments were excised from microshoots and used to evaluate factors affecting bulk alginate encapsulation. Storage vessel type, volume and multiple rinse effects of CaCl2 solutions, and sodium alginate concentrations were evaluated. The article suggests a new technique utilizing bulk methods rather than single bead encapsulation.
