For the PGR-free 1/2MS solid medium, both the 2- and 4-month-old seedlings grew and developed normally without forming adventitious embryos. In contrast, the BA at 1, 2.5, and 5 mg/L and TDZ at 0.1, 0.5, and 1 mg/L induced embryo formation from the distal site of shoots of the 2- (Table 1) and 4-month-old seedlings (Table 2).
