Western Himalaya is a reservoir of plants that constitutes a large number of economically important species of both pharmaceutical and medicinal importance. Many of these plant species have become rare and endangered and are in the verge of extinction due to over exploitation. One of such plant is Picrorhiza kurroa which is high altitude plant with a large number of therapeutic properties. Therefore, it is extremely important to explore the different methods of propagation and conservation of P. kurroa under in vitro conditions and also in its natural habitat.
