Abstract: Lagerstroemia speciosa (L) Pers., a common road-side tree of Singapore, was successfully mass-produced using the tissue culture technique. Nodal segments were the best explants as they could produce more multiple shoots than do shoot tips with BAP and 2ip treatments. The excised shoots were rooted in agar medium or sterilised sand, supplemented with IBA. The former was found superior. About 90% of the plantlets survived when transplanted to soil.
