Explants of leaves, petals, anthers, styles and ovaries of C. speciosus, C.
cancellatus, C. gilanicus and C. almehensis were cultured on LS media with three
different combinations of NAA and BAP in the dark. Callus and neoformant organs
(leaf and corm-like structure and ordinary and contractileroots) were fomd on some
of these explants. Corm explants from these species were also cultured on MS media
with different combinations of NAA, BAP, Kin, zeatin and 2,4-D in the dark. Callus
formation and corm, shoot and root regeneration were observed on corm explants
from some of these species.
