Fritillaria aurea Schott, an Iran-Turan element, is a rare alpine geophyte with spotted brown yellow flowers. The plant is endemic to Turkey with dispersion in the South-Eastern Anatolia region. This study reports in vitro culture of Fritillaria aurea previously collected from the provinces of Adiyaman and Malatya in the South-Eastern Anatolia Region and presently cultured at the Ornamental Plants Garden Collection of Faculty of Agriculture, Dicle University, Diyarbakir, Turkey. Bulblets were cultured on MS medium containing different concentrations of TDZ, TDZ andNAA. Callus induction followed by bulb formation was noted on bulblets. The bulblets obtained these were cultured on MS medium containing 40 or80 g/l sucrose to increase bulb diameter. The in vitro regenerated bulblets were rooted on MS medium containing different concentrations of IBA (0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1.0 mg/l) supplemented with 30 g/l sucrose. A significant increase in number of bulblets and bulb diameter was noted on F. aurea Schott bulbs.
