Application Notes

Coconut water has been shown to stimulate shoot proliferation in man y plant species . This is most likely due to its unique composition of nutrients and natural phytohormones (e.g. zeatin and kinetin) (Mamaril et al ., 1988). It is most commonly used in orchid tissue culture as a medium supplement. Introduced by Overbeek et al. in 1940, coconut water was used as a new component of nutrient medium for callus cultures (1941) and has since become a popular additive in tissue culture media.
