Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Macro Propagation of long internode Schizostachyum pergracile (Munro.)” was laid out at Bamboo Nursery, College of Forestry, ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during March-2015 to June-2017. Culms of Three year old bamboo culms of S. pergracile (Munro.) was selected for investigation. Three noded bamboo culm cuttings were sterilized with the fungicide after that administered with different concentration of Plant Growth Regulators (auxins). The results revealed the highest percentage of cuttings sprouted (77.16 %), percentage of cuttings rooted (69.75 %), number of leaves per plant (61.17), number of roots (30.72), length of root (24.67 cm), days taken for initiation for first sprouting (13.28 days), length of sprouts (101.34 cm) and percentage of plants survived after transplanting (69.17 %) were recorded in combination of treatment NAA 200 ppm + IBA 500 ppm which was followed by NAA 200ppm, while minimum or lowest values were recorded in T1: Control for first two parameters are (4.53 % and 19.77, respectively). Hence, it can be concluded that the NAA 200 ppm + IBA 500 ppm can be used for large scale production along with higher rate of survival of long internode bamboo S. pergracile due to its high demand in kite industry, paper-pulp industry and other handicrafts.
