Author(s): Chesha Desai, Rajashekhar Inghalihalli, R. Krishnamurthy
Abstract: Anthurium andraeanum belongs to Araceae family and its thousands of cultivars have been very popular among the gardeners and florists thus, contributing substantially to the floricultural trade. Anthurium flowers are comparatively costlier as the production cost of planting material. Conventional methods of vegetative propagation are slow and cannot keep pace with increasing demand every year. Micropropagation is the only tool which helps in producing high quality planting material in large quantity. Micropropagation is a sophisticated technique which involves different stages which have to be performed carefully to successfully produce the planting material. Various techniques of micropropagation being followed in different parts of the world have been reviewed in this paper.
