The Hawaiian ti plant, Cordyline terminalis (L.) Kunth, a woody ornamental plant, can be propagated in vitro from shoot tips, using several medium modifications (2, 3). Propagation of the ti plant can also be achieved by differentiation from callus tissue derived from young leaves near the apical meristem. Using this technique, it is possible to rapidly propagate ti plants to satisfy local needs and to supply foreign countries with large shipments of possibly disease- and pestfree plants. The procedure may be applicable to herbaceous as well as to woody monocotyledonous plants.
