Micromorphological evaluation of the foliar trichomes of ?eld grown and micropropagated Stachys natalensis Hochst. (Lamiaceae)

13 Aug 2020

Stachys natalensis Hochst is a perennial shrub with aromatic leaves that are covered with hairs. Micromorphological features of the leaf secretory structures were evaluated using scanning electron microscopy. Glandular and non-glandular trichomes were present on the adaxial and abaxial foliar surfaces of field grown and micropropagated plants. Greater trichome distribution was observed on the abaxial surface, decreasing as the leaf developed (P?
