High Frequency and Rapid in vitro Plant Regeneration of Coleus forskohlii Briq

Coleus forskohlii Briq. (Lamiaceae) is an important medicinal plant with excellent export potential in herbal drug trade. The pharmacological properties of Coleus forskohlii makes it useful to cure high blood pressure, spasmolysis, obesity and constipation, asthma and certain cancers. The present work is aimed to develop a protocol for minimizing time duration to get complete plants through tissue culture technique. Within 35 ± 2 d using shoot tips as explants; we developed complete plants of Coleus forskohlii in MS medium containing 2.0 mg/l BAP through direct multiplication at the rate of 15-20 shoots per explant. The rooting occurred in all the plants and survival rate of full grown plants is 100%. This protocol is very efficient for the mass multiplication of Coleus forskohlii and is the fastest method as compared to all the reported ones.
