Abstract

From the previous research in plant tissue cultures, the promising results was obtained, i.e. shoot cultures of Musa paradisiaca var. saba were able to grow on media containing copper ions with concentration up to 20 part per million (ppm) and could remove 1.631 ppm of the ions and accumulate them in their biomass. Then, this research is targeted to cultivate the resulting selected cultures on rooting media and then acclimate them on normal soil and soil containing various concentrations of copper with an intention to get plants that are able to reduce the contamination of copper ions in contaminated soil. From the results of this project it is clear that Murashige Skoog (MS) media without any addition of Naphthalene Acetic acid (NAA) has already been able to induce the formation of roots of the selected shoot cultures. Up to the end of this research period, the completely growing cultures are able to be acclimated on normal soil and soil containing copper ions up to 25 ppm and the acclimated cultures (regenerant plants) can accumulate promisingly as much as 2.122 ppm of them in their biomass from soil containing 25 ppm copper ions.
