Abstract: The main objective of this study was the development of root (Rhizogenesis) and shoot ( caulogenesis) development in Catharanthusroseus. The nodal segments are sterilized with distilled water and autoclaved distilled water. Then surface sterilized with mercuric chloride for 1min. later these explants were inoculated in MS medium containing tubes. After 7- 10days we observe the development of shoot in Catharanthusroseus. We observed the growth in medium which contains the combination of two growth hormones i.e IAA (Indoleacetic acid) + BA (Benzyl adinine). IAA is an auxin which promotes the development of roots in the medium where as BA is ancytokinin which promotes the development of shoot. We tried with different combinations of growth hormones at different quantities but finally got the result for the combination of IAA +BA.
Keywords: IAA+BA.
