Abstract In vitro clonai multip1ication of Coleus forskahlii Briq a threatened plant, has been achieved on MS medium supplemented with Kn (2.0 mg/l) and IAA (1.0 mg/l) using nodal segments as explants, Shoots multiplied at a rate of 12 - fold every six weeks. Rooting was achieved upon transfer of shoots onto MS medium containing IAA (1.0 mg/l). The micropropagated plants were successfully established under field conditions. Forskolin content in tubers of plants obtained by micropropagation was found to be 0.1\%, the same as that found in wild plants. This micropropagation procedure should be useful for conservation as well as production of this important plant.
