TRIACONTANOL the powder chemical for use in-vitro in areas of plant micropropagation, plant tissue culture and aseptic seed raising.


Triacontanol used in orchid raising in-vitro

The plant growth regulator triacontanol can be used in-vitro in the plant laboratory for micropropagation, plant tissue culture and aseptic seed raising.


We have been using triacontanol for in-vitro plant culture, micropropagation and aseptic seed raising of orchids for many years. We were able to prove its effectiveness back in the early 1980's at TQPL. http://www.tissuequickplantlabs.com

We know what a potent chemical it is for improving plant grow in-vitro and we have used this knowledge to develop a range of Triplantanol products.

The product can be used in liquid shake cultures and agar cultures. It can be used as an additive to agar cultures for raising a number of orchid genera from seed.

The chemical Triacontanol is a very concentrated plant growth regulator when used in-vitro and can make a significant effect to how plants grow. Its potency is illustrated by the very low concentrations used for in-vitro cultures.

We suggest using it as a supplement to the usual media composition of your media. Triacontanol can be added at time of media mixing and can be autoclaved. Triacontanol can be dissolved in hot DMSO or other solvents and added to the heated media prior to dispensing. Polysorbate can also be used to dissolve the powder.

For general micropropagation using liquid culture we suggest add at concentration of 1.0mg to 2.0mg / litre

For general micropropagation as agar cultures we suggest add at concentration of 1.0mg to 4.0mg /litre

This concentration can be increased if charcoal is incorporated in the media

Orchid aseptic seed germination media and also rooting media can make use of triacontanol at a concentration of 1.0mg to 4.0mg / litre.

It is very easy to monitor in-vitro plants, because environmental conditions are easily controlled. So it is also easy to see the proof of how it works. The addition of triacontanol to in-vitro media can significantly improve plant propagation media and its effect on plant production.
