Micropropagation Photoautotrophic Kalanchoe pinnata in water and humus with use of natural light, and determination of total flavonoids: A Review

Authors(3) :-Neves C. R. S. S., Procopio M. C., Penna T. C. V.

Micropropagation is a vegetative propagation method widely studied in many different plant species, beinga mode in tissue culture, the one that has found widespread and proven practical applications. Among the advantages of its use is the possibility of obtaining various plants from an initial explant, regardless of the season, besides the reduction of time and area required for the species propagation. The development of photoautotrophic micropropagation systems with natural light usage, emerge as potential possibilities to increase the micropropagation efficiency and help reduce costs, making it commercially viable for active principles and phytotherapeutics production. Thus, the flavonoid content contained in Kalanchoe pinnata plant extract, can base the pharmacological activity of it when used by population, for the cure and prevention of various types of chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
