Different nutrient media were used to test the totipotency of Canna indica. The Canna responded by exehibiting growth

after the 7-12 days in presence of MS media. It was also observed that Canna grew fast through tissued cultured rasied bulbs

and it was best, when at least 6-8 hours of sunlight each day is provided during the growing season. This protocol for plant

tissue culture raised clone was standardized at National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI), Lucknow laboratories.
