In this study, different combinations of benzylaminopurine (BAP) and naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) were used to establish an efficient in vitro regeneration in two different types of explants: stem and shoot tip of seedlings obtained from in vitro seed germination of Passiflora edulis Sims var. edulis. The results obtained showed that BAP induced shoots while NAA induced roots. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) studies were carried out to observe and differentiate the morphology of in vitro
