Capsicum annuum is an important vegetable for human alimentation, because of its content in vitamins, minerals and, especially, the capsaicine. In this experiment we have studied the development of Capsicum annuum vitroplantlets, the Mexican variety (Jalapeño), obtained by aseptic germination of this plant’s seeds. The seeds were inoculated on Murashige and Skoog medium (BM), with and without growth regulators, resulting 4 experimental variants: V0–control variant = BM without growth regulators, V1 = BM+NAA(0.1mg/l), V2 = BM+IBA(0.1mg/l), and V3 = BM+KIN (0.1mg/l). The experiment, which lasted for 40 days, have revealed that the best growth medium for Capsicum annuum vitroplantlets is V1 (BM+NAA), the IBA and KIN having a negative influence to these plantlets development. After 40 days of “in vitro” culture, the ex-vitroplantlets were acclimatized successfully in common soil.
