The results on shoot multiplication show that BA was indispensable, and the number of shoots produced increased with the increasing of cytokinin concentration.
This study showed that shoot bud induction was mainly influenced by the type of cytokinin supplemented in the induction medium.
The synergistic effect of auxin-cytokinin (BAP + IAA, Kn + IAA) was observed with the sterile explants cultured in MS medium containing different combinations of auxin and cytokinins.

micrantha and the second goal was to investigate the influences of different commercial medium and concentrations of cytokinin on bulblet multiplication of proliferated calli.
It is a fact that plant height is stimulated by the presence of cytokinin regulators, since they promote cell division in the apical meristem of the stem and the subsequent cellular elongation (Taiz et al., 2017).
