In vitro morphogenesis from ovary-slices of Hippeastrum cv. Hermitage was examined. Bulblet formation rates were high with 1mgl[-1] and higher concentrations of naphthyl acetic acid (NAA) together with high (1,2 or 5mgl[-1]) concentrations of N-benzyladenine (BA), and the highest number of bulblets was 5.3 with 5mgl[-1] NAA+5mgl[-1] BA. Somatic embryogenesis was histologically confirmed. High frequency of embryogenesis was obtained with higher concentrations of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) (1-5mgl[-1])+ thidiazuron (TDZ) (0.02-2mgl[-1]), which lead the high rates snd number of bulblet formation.
