A method for the regeneration of lily plantlets (Lilium spp.) through different morphogenic pathways is described. Plant regeneration was obtained from in vitro cultured leaves of four lily hybrids, cultured on Murashige and Skoog’s basal medium supplemented with cytokinins (TDZ and BA) and auxins (NAA and IBA) at different concentrations. Direct shoot regeneration occurred with all tested media for the Asiatic lilies ’Elite’ and ’Pollyanna’ and also for the Oriental hybrid ’Star Gazer’. Callus developed on TDZ-enriched medium from leaf segments of L. longiflorum cv. ’Snow Queen’ regenerated by direct organogenesis. This occurred on a medium with auxin/cytokinin balance which was lower than other genotypes. There were fewer problems of sterilization with leaves from sprouted bulbs than in vitro scale culture. This suggests that the leaf-segments obtained in this way could be an alternative to the scales as a source of material for propagation. A protocol for micropropagation based on bulblets from in vitro shoot-tip-derived stem nodes was also used. The development of pseudo-bulbets is particularly advantageous since it allows for structures characterised by absent or low dormancy. Regenerated shoots have been rooted and successfully acclimatized to greenhouse conditions where they flowered after the second year giving plants with true-to-type shape and colour.
