Every Organ of the body in so important, every member of the family or community is very important and every Human Being born on the Planet Earth is called to build a “Human Global Village”. Have you ever wondered a leaf can give life? A cut flower can generate thousands of same plants? Can the stem exhibit life and produce same plants as Mother Plants? Here is an Orange Bloom of the Hills, which can do everything isn’t a Miracle? I am reminded of a beautiful hymn by Dominique Cerejo.
“Isn’t it a miracle to open your eyes in the morning To see the golden sun rise, and hear the birds sing Isn’t it a miracle to feel the gentle breeze And to see the wind dancing in the trees Yes, it’s a miracle, there are miracles every moment, That God is always present, His strength is never spent Yes, it’s a miracle, to be alive and be living Each day is a miracle with its countless blessings”.
In the paper by the author Sagaya Mary B. shows how plants can also be regenerated from leaf, stem, nodes and internodes of the plant body. It is proved by this presentation and practical work done in Tissue Culture Lab clearly, brings out plants can, not only be produced from germination of seeds by nature through the formation of Plantlets, but Plantlets can also be produced from every Tissue of the Mother Plant.
The term "modified starch" encompasses many varieties, such as: oxidised starch, acetylated starch, phosphorylated starch, hydroxypropylated starch, and starch sodium octenyl succinate.
In the Tissue Culture we use nutrient medium which are suitable for the growth of the tissues and provides an environment, for each tissue to produce the plantlets. In the paper published it is highlighted that the composition of the nutrient medium was different for each of the explants. The plantlets grown from the tissue cultured plants were hardened in the green house and were shifted back to nature.
Dendrobium jerdonianum is a threatened orchid of Western Ghats so there is a greater need to conserve them. Plant Tissue Culture provides an opportunity for this orchid to multiply by in vitro and micropropagation studies, by doing this we are conserving this particular species of Western Ghats for the future generation and saving them from being endangered. This is the effort of the author as it is the first paper to be published on these species, researchers and plant biologists across the globe can take up further studies on this threatened orange bloom. As I conclude I would like to say every journey begins from finite to the infinite, from a single cell to the multi cellular, from a drop to the ocean, from an organ to the organisms.
