Paper Title: Effect of key parameters on the pollen germination in an ayurvedic medicinal plant- Nithya pushpa (Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don)

Abstract: Nithya Pushpa is a perennial herb extensively grown for its medicinal and horticultural importance. Pollen grains or microspores are the male reproductive structures produced specifically in the anthers of flowers in angiosperms. The present study is an attempt to test the effect of certain key parameters on the germination potential of pollen grains in Nithya Pushpa. The pollen from the plant was subjected to germination in mediums containing different concentrations of sucrose and was found that germination medium containing 200 g/L sucrose is most suitable since it gave 100% germination within 20 minutes. The study also tested the effect of boric acid on the germination potential of pollen and found that boron significantly enhances the pollen tube formation. The study also revealed that maximum germination of pollen occurs at neutral pH and at a temperature range between 28-32°C.
Keywords: Pollen germination, Nithya Pushpa, sucrose, boric acid
