This publication provides a background to the micropropagation of a recalcitrant plant species. Information relating to in vitro systems to overcome contaminants, browning of plant tissue and media testing are outlined in detail. Further experimentation relating to ideal concentrations and types of plant growth regulators needs to be addressed before a strict protocol can be recommended for the micropropagation of this plant. It is expected that this project will continue so that a sound protocol can be devised to provide opportunities for commercial row production to proceed. The outcomes of this experimentation are expected to expand the native cutflower industry while conserving a unique Australian monocot.
