Development of axenic seedlings of the seagrass, Enhalus acoroides (L.f.)
Royle

Axenic culture of the seagrass, Enhalus acoroides (L.f.) Royle was successfully established using seeds which were aseptically
dissected out from the fruits. The seedlings were raised in four culture media devoid of growth hormones. Axenicity of the
seedlings was analysed by adopting standard marine bacterial / fungal isolation procedures and also by scanning electron
microscopy
