In this study, the effects of different concentration and ratio of growth regulators on seed germination, rapid propagation and in vitro flowering of Mengzia foliosa were studied. The results showed that the seeds had strong activity and high germination rate at 105 days after artificial self-pollination, and 1/2MS+0.6 mg/L NAA+1.0 mg/L 6-BA medium was more suitable for seed germination. Meanwhile, 2.0 mL/L 6-BA without NAA was more suitable for cluster bud proliferation; and 1/2MS+1.0 mL/L NAA+30 g/L potato homogenate medium was the best for rooting and hardening-off. In addition, 1.0 mg/L 6-BA+0.5 mg/L NAA+1.0 mg/L PP333 medium had the highest flowering rate. Our results not only contribute to the conservation and sustainable use of the species, but also provide important materials and technical support for wild population restoration and reconstruction.

Key words: Mengzia foliosa, aseptic sowing, rapid propagation, in vitro flowering
