Abstract:
The demand for medicinal plants has increased tremendously at Global level, which causes huge pressure on wild collection. The unscientific and unsystematic collection from wild “adds fuel to the fire.” As the consequence, the rates of exploitation may exceed those of natural regeneration. Also, the natural habitats are fast depleting. Therefore, it is need of the hour to standardize the propagation techniques of important medicinal plants. Tribulus terrestris, an economically important medicinal plant species, also known as puncture vine, is a perennial hardy plant species, but it also grows as an annual in colder climates. In this Research, Tribulus terristris was subjected to moist sand stratification (S1 = 0 days, S2 = 15 days, S3 = 25 days and S4 = 35 days) to give best treatment for better seed germination of the species. In order to work out best sowing media for better growth and survival, three different sowing media were used (Sand, Sand and Soil, Sand, Soil and FYM). The seedlings were also tried in beds, paper bags and hanging pots to study the growth parameters of the species.
