Stereospermum suaveolens (DC.) is a multipurpose tree endowed with medicinal properties and good timber wood quality.
Wood is employed for construction work, planks and beam, carts, carriages and wagons, furniture, cabinet work and tool
handles. It has analgesic and wound healing property. It is anti-dyspeptic, astringent and a liver stimulant. It is one of the important
tree species used in the preparation of ayurvedic formulation known as Dashmula. In Dashmula tree species, the roots are used
in preparation of ayurvedic formulations. The destruction of these plants is severe and planting of seedlings is almost negligible.
Due to low germination and unsuccessful vegetative propagation in vitro regeneration of Stereospermum suaveolens through
micropropagation was studied. In the present study, shoots were initiated from the nodal segments of Stereospermum suaveolens
further shoot proliferation was achieved on MS medium supplemented with different concentrations of phytohormones and
additives.100% root initiation was achieved in the MS medium fortified with IBA. Different substrates were evaluated during
hardening phase. The plants of S .suaveolens grown on coco peat showed 84.6 percent survival and those on soil mixture showed
76.47 percent survival.
