In Pinus peuce zygotic embryo culture grown on Gresshoff and Doy (1972; GD) basal medium, 2.22 mu M benzyladenine (BA) was superior in promoting adventitious bud induction during 4 weeks comparing to kinetin or BA + kinetin. Shoot elongation was achieved on half-strength GD medium devoid of plant growth regulators and containing activated charcoal. Pulse treatment with 1 mM indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) for 2 h, followed by transfer to half-strength GD medium, produced the most efficient rooting. Rooted shoots were transplanted to the greenhouse and plantlets continued to grow and developed into phenotypically normal plants. Up to 10 plants per explant can be obtained within 36 weeks from culture initiation.
