ABSTRACT

Sterculia foetida Linn. is an oval seed plants that can be used as biofuel, which one of the enviromentally friendly fuel. This plant is quite hard to find because not many people who cultivate these plants. Tissue culture is one way to help preserve these plants. This research aims to determine optimum concentration of BAP and IAA to proppagate S. foetida Linn. by in vitro. Results show that 4 ppm BAP and 0.5 ppm IAA is able to produce complete plantlet, whereas 4 ppm BAP and 1 ppm IAA has the best growth of shoot and leaves. Keywords: Sterculia foetida Linn, tissue culture, BAP, IAA
