Studies were conducted to regulate in vitro protocols for the establishment of Irvingia wombolu MILDBR. Axillary bud explants of Irvingia wombolu were cultured on various strengths, full (MS + KIN or BAP), half (1/2 MS + KIN or BAP) and one quarter (1/4 MS + KIN or BAP) of MS (Murashige and Skoog) medium supplemented with different levels (0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5mg/l) of kinetin (Kin) or benzyl-amino purine (BAP) under aseptic conditions. Subsequently, one quarter strength growth medium with 3mg/l of kinetin (Kin) and 4mg/l of benzyl-amino purine (BAP), which gave the best growth performance was used to study the effects of culture passage (frequency of subculture - 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 times, subcultured every week) and disinfection time of 0.1% mercuric chloride solution (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 min) on in vitro establishment of the species. A culture passage of 2 times a week was optimum for regeneration frequency of the species. In addition, a disinfection time of 5 minutes was optimum in terms of reduced contamination and best regeneration frequency for establishment of the species. This study suggests that establishment of Irvingia wombolu explants can be achieved if the basic culture conditions are maintained at optimum levels.
