Abstract

A suitable medium for the in-​vitro culture of Costus pictus D.Don, was standardized. Aerial rhizomes were used as explants. Different combinations of NAA and BAP and other supplements using MS medium were tried. Maximum culture establishment were obtained on MS medium supplemented with 0.5 mg​/l NAA and 2 mg​/l BAP. The established shoot tips were sub cultured on MS medium supplemented with BAP along with NAA in different combinations. The established plantlets were transferred to green house for further studies. The nutrient status of the plants inoculated with Glomus fasciculatum, Azotobacter, Aspergillus awamori, Frateuria aurentia and Trichoderma viride showed significant increase in mineral element content, protein and carbohydrate content. There was appreciable increase in total antioxidants content in plants inoculated with the same combination. Hence, combined inoculation with Glomus fasciculatum, Azotobacter, Aspergillus awamori, Frateuria aurentia and Trichoderma viride are effective for field application that enhances the nutrient value of plants.
