Present work was conducted to reveal the propagation possibilities of Camarosa, Chandler and Oso Grande strawberry cultivars in meristem culture by using different doses and combinations of BAP(benzylaminopurine), IAA (indoleacetic acid) and GA3 (gibberellic acid) as well as active charcoal (AC) in rooting stage. In the meristem growth and development stage, 1.0 mg L-1 BAP and 1.0 mg L-1 IAA in the propagation stage, different concentrations and combinations of BAP, IAA and GA3were evaluated. In the propagation stage a) 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 mg L-1 BAP + 1.0 mg L-1 IAA + 1.0 mg L-1 GA3, b) 1.0 mg L-1 BAP + 1.0 mg L-1 IAA + 0, 0.1, 0.4, 0.8 and 1.0 mg L-1 GA3 and c) 1.0 mg L-1 BAP + 0, 0.1, 0.4, 0.8 and 1.0 mg L-1 IAA + 1.0 mg L-1 GA3 were studied. In case of the rooting stage different doses of AC (0, 2.0, 4.0 and 6.0 g L-1) were also investigated. As a result, the doses to be recommended were found as follows: 1.0 mg L-1 BAP for each; 0.4, 0.8 and 1.0 mg L-1 GA3 for Camarosa; 0.1 mg L-1 GA3 for Chandler and 0.4 mg L-1 GA3 for Oso Grande. Regarding IAA, 1.0 mg L-1 IAA was found to be the most appropriate concentration for the number of shoots and quality. In case of rooting stage, elevated doses of AC engendered an increase in the number of roots, the length of the root, number of leaves and stem diameter in each strawberry cultivar.
