Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.) Miers ex Hook. F and Thoms: An important medicinal, climber plant and its multiplication in Herbal garden for ex-situ conservation

Author(s): D. K. Patel
Abstract: The plant is marked for its potential medicinal value among the human beings. As the plant is well adapted to develop in almost all type of soil in wide range. It is a climbing nature Medicinal plant and is well performing their propagation by using their stem cutting modes. Its multiplication study was made in Herbal garden developed for the aim of ex-situ conservation of Medicinal and Aromatic plants.
Older plants basal parts become woody whereas upper parts are herbaceous in nature. The plants stem cuttings was potentially used for further development of new individuals of the plants like their parental ones. Mature stem around 10–15 cm long were obliquely cut and deep in soil for generations of new buds/roots for further development of its new plants.rnThe strategy was done in Herbal garden for their rapid multiplication as well as for dispersal in varied needed sites. Selection, utilization and management of the plant parts to form a new plant were discussed in current paper. This procedure not only supports its proper growth/propagation but also is remarkable for its ex-situ conservation.
