Abstract: 

African violet (Saintpaulia ionatha) is a day - neuter indoor plant that has the ability to flower throughout the year, is traditionally propagated from leaf cutting. The purpose of this study was the optimization of two hormones concentration for better proliferation and micro shoot transplant directly to the rooting media.
The MS medium was prepared with IAA (2.0 mg/liter) and BA (0.08 mg/liter) and then used for establishment stage according to the method of Cooke (Cooke, R.C. 1977). In second stage The leaves and petioles formed in the glass jars to 3
×3 treatments and then analysed by factorial arrangement design. The treatments were include 1) IAA with 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 mg/liter, 2) BA with 0.04, 0.08 and 0.12 mg/liter and 3) Thiamine - Hcl with 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 mg/liter.
The results of this study indicate that the best hormones concentration for proliferation is IAA (3.0 mg/l), BA (0.12mg/1). Micro shoot transplant directly in jiffy - 7and perlite media that jiffy -7 compared with perlite was more effective. The plants flowered 4-6 month later in a good condition.
