Abstract
Canna , the solitary genus of the family Cannaceae and order Zingiberales, comprises of about 51 species of flowering plants. It is a horticultural plant but its agricultural importance can’t be undervalued. Canna is a self pollinating plant and require outside pollinator due to its typical flower structure. Propagation through seed germination is not considered reliable. In order to pro duce genetically modified and improved varieties of Canna , various in vitro techniques had been studied. Thus the present study reflects a comprehensive review on in vitro propagation of Canna species with special reference to some other members of Zingiberales.
