The present investigation was carried out to demonstrate the plant morphogenetic potential of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) in a commercially important medical plant Canscora decussata. Leaf and nodal explants were used and highest callusing frequency (97.18%) was recorded for leaf explants supplemented with 1.0 mg/L NAA + 2.0 mg/L 2ip + 15 µM SNP. SNP enhanced multiple shoot formation in both nodal and leaf explants derived callus considerably in the media supplemented with 1.0 mg/L NAA + 15 µM SNP and 0.5 mg/L BAP + 15 µM SNP (98.32 and 96.12%) respectively. The root induction also drastically increased with the supplementation of SNP (10 µM) in combination with 1.0 mg/L IBA. Our results proved that SNP with other growth hormones act synergistically to enhance the in vitro responses including callus, shoot, and root induction. This optimized tissue culture system will be very useful for the mass propagation of C. decussata for both commercial and conservation aspects.
