Abstract

Paphiopedilum delenatii is recalcitrant to micropropagation. Lack of high efficient method for massive production of seedlings has existed for many years. In this paper, young shoots with 4 leaves were cultured on SH medium containing 0.5 mg/l BA, 0.5 mg/l NAA, 30 g/l sucrose, 9 g/l agar and 1 g/l activated charcoal and maintained under total darkness for 4 months before transferred into fluorescent light at a PPFD of 45 μmol m−2s-1 for 2 months. After 4 months cultured under darkness, the shoots were extended for an average of 10.5 cm, with 5 leaves/ shoot, equivalent to 5 nodes/ shoot. After the next 2 months under fluorescent light, leaf formation was obtained but no stem node induction was observed. Shoots were then excised into 5 single nodes with 1 leaf and 1 root per node, and the apical shoots developed with 3 leaves and 2 roots each. Finally, nodes with well-developed root and leaf systems were grown in sphagnum moss (Taiwan) and gave the survival rate of 100% after 12 months.
