A suitable plant regeneration protocol has been developed from scale leaf and bulb scale explants of Scilla hyacinthina, a medicinally important plant species belonging to the family liliaceae. The maximum number of shoots (13.2), with average length 6.5 cm, was achieved with medium containing 1.5 mg/l TDZ. Rooting of shoots was achieved on half-strength MS medium supplemented with 1.5 mg/1 IAA.
