Dendrobium is one of the largest and most important orchid genera because of their ornamental and commercial value. Plant tissue culture is an established method for the effective micropropagation of of valuable plants. In this study, Dendrobium caesar keikis were sterilized with sodium hypochlorite 2.5 % in 15 minutes. Effects of 3 kinds of cytokinin (TDZ, BA and kinetin), adenine and 3 kinds of auxin (IAA, IBA, NAA) with different concentrations on inducing shoots and roots were studied. The highest shoot initation was observed on Knudson C (KC) medium supplemented with BA 2.0 mg/L. Strong roots were induced in KC media supplied with 0.5 g/L active charcoal (AC) and 1.0 mg/L IAA. In order to transfer in vitro plant to the nursery garden, the highest percentage of survival seedling was shown on coconut husk substrate, and peanut husk was the best for the growth and development of Dendrobium caesar. Micropropagation and nursery at garden for Dendrobium caesar were successfully established.
