Ornamental plants are produced primarily for their artistic value, thus the propagation and improvement of quality attributes and the creation of novel variation are important economic goals for floriculturists. Micropropagation, clonal reliability and conservation are important aspects. The advent of in vitro tissue culture technique now allows morphogenetic investigations. The chapter reviews in vitro techniques including type of explants, optimized media, ways of propagation and improvement through research on different ornamentals. This provides a basis for genetic transformation for breeding aims, developing new cultivars, developing disease-resistant plants and overcoming the environmental obstacles.
