Abstract:

Hibiscus rosa sinensis is an evergreen herbaceous plant   known to possess medicinal properties like oral contraceptive, laxative, aphrodisiac, menorrhagic etc. In the current study influence of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (Glomus mosseae) inoculation on Hibicus rosa sinensis was studied for 60 days in open potted experiments. Physical growth parameters viz shoot length, root length, fresh weight, and dry weight of plants were studied. Macro and micronutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn, B and Mo) were analyzed in roots and leaves of plant. Root colonization study   was done and percentage root infection was calculated. Glomus mosseae inoculated plants revealed more growth with nearby 60% increase in shoot length and 33% increase in number of leaves.The concentration of macronutrients N, P, K and Zn was also found  more in GM plants. GM treatment was found to be successful for Hibiscus rosa sinensis plant and hence can be used as an ecofriendly measure for mass multiplication of Hibiscus rosa sinensis. However effect of other AM species in combination with phosphate solubilizers on Hibiscus rosa sinensis can also be studied in future.


Keywords: Arbuscular Mycorrhiza, Glomus mosseae, Hibiscus rosa sinensis, Physical growth parameters Macro and micronutrients.
