Effect of temperature on in vitro seed germination and mean germination time of endemic medicinal plant Nepeta viscida Boiss. (Lamiaceae)
Nepeta viscida Boiss. isan endemic plantbelongs to the family Labiatae. It has medicinal properties. There is no study on seed germination of this plant. Therefore, study of germination of this plant is essential. Effect of temperature on in vitro seed germination and mean germination time of the plant were determinated. The seeds of the medicinal plant were exposed to germination temperature treatments ranging from of 10 to 30°C. The highest germination obtained at 25 °C (60 %). The lowest germination obtained at 10 °C. The mean germination time has been affected by temperature. This is the first report on effect of temperature on in vitro seed germination of Nepeta viscida Boiss.
