Addition of Si to the tissue culture medium improves organogenesis, embryogenesis, growth traits, morphological, anatomical, and physiological characteristics of leaves, enhances tolerance to low temperature and salinity, protects cells and against metal toxicity, prevents oxidative phenolic browning and reduces the incidence of hyperhydricity in various plants. doi: 10.1016/j.aquabot.20 Cross Ref Full Text | Google Scholar Moriguchi, T., Kozaki, I., Matsuta, N., and Yamaki, S. Plant regeneration from grape callus stored under a combination of low temperature and silicone treatment.
Therefore, Si possesses considerable potential for application in a wide range of plant tissue culture studies such as cryopreservation, organogenesis, micropropagation, somatic embryogenesis and secondary metabolites production.
Many researchers set up an experiment, make measurements, do an analysis of variance, calculate the mean response for each treatment, and then try to decide if the treatment means are significantly different and why.
Much too frequently, Duncan's multiple range test is used to test differences among means.
The availability of Si in hydroponic and substrate plant production system is restricted.
Addition of Si to the nutrient solution or soilless substrate enhanced growth traits, yield and quality of several crops (Voogt and Sonneveld, 2001).

Several morpho-physiological disorders such as hooked leaves, hyperhydricity, fasciation, and shoot tip necrosis are often associated with the concentration of inorganic nutrient in the tissue culture medium.
