Abstract

Mosquito plant (Pelargonium × citrosum Vanleenii) is a genetically engineered hybrid possessing the characteristics of geranium coupled with a sweet lemony citronella scent. As such, this hybrid has become much more popular as an ornamental plant with the added benefit of mosquito-repelling capability. We report a novel protocol for shoot organogenesis from young leaf and petiole explants sourced from both pot grown and in vitro plants. Our study shows that 6-benzyladenine, thidiazuron and kinetin are effective in inducing adventitious shoot production, unlike 2-4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and ¿-naphthaleneacetic acid. This suggests that these cytokinins play a key role in inducing adventitious shoots from young P. × citrosum leaf and petiole explants. This study offers a novel and efficient mass shoot propagation and plant regeneration protocol for mosquito plant.
