Shoot cultures of Digitalis lanata have been established by inoculating the shoot tip of seedlings germinated in aseptic culture, or of field-grown plants, onto Linsmaier and Skoog's RM medium supplemented with 1 mg 6-benzylaminopurine and 0.1 mg indolacetic acid 1−1. On this medium formation of up to 30 new axillary shoots could be induced. Shoots could be grown into functional plants after root induction on a medium containing reduced amounts (one-fifth of normal) of nitrogen and indolebutyric acid (0.5 mg 1−1).
