Table 1 Effect of Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 2.89 μM gibberellic acid (GA3) and 1.08 μM α-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) in addition to 6-benzyl adenine (BA) or kinetin (Kin) on the in vitro establishment of Silene schimperiana shoot tip and stem nodal segment explants. All treatments gave 100% of both survived explants and growth formation
