Garcinia gummi-gutta: Root trainer technology

Garcinia gummi-gutta (Cambogia gummigutta L.,)

Root trainer technology

G. gummi-gutta produce ripe fruits during June-July and therefore seeds were not available to try the root-technology to generate seedlings of the species. However, seeds sown in potting mixture filled polypots gave 71 per cent germination, and therefore, root-trainers with mixed weed or coir pith can also be used to germinate seeds of Garcinia gummi-gutta with probably the same or more germination rate.

Vegetative propagation

Juvenile stem cuttings were tried for rooting. Three concentrations of IBA were used (3000 ppm, 4000 ppm and 5000 ppm) for the experiment. For each concentration of the rooting hormone used, 24 samples were tried in vermiculite-filled root trainers (Fig. 4.3.7). The maximum rooted samples (54%) were in 4000 ppm IBA treated samples after one month.
