Shoot tip, leaf with petiole, nodal stem and root explants of in vitro germinated seedlings of Paulownia tomentosa Steud. were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium combined with 1-naphthaleneaceticacid (NAA)/6-benzylaminopurine (BAP), indole3-aceticacid (IAA)/BAP or IAA/Kinetin. Nodal stem explants were found to be an excellent explant source to induce direct ogranogenesis. The highest number of shoot regeneration from stem explants was obtained on MS medium supplemented with 0.1 mg.l -1
