The clonally propagated Aconitum carmichaelii Debx. was used for the investigation of microtubering. The rooting condition of propagated shoots affected the establishment of transplantation to soil indicating the Murashige-Skoog medium supplemented with 0.5 mg/l of IAA and the cultivation at 20°C are the best. Culturing at 15°C under the dark enhanced microtubering rather than 10°C or 20°C. The temperature affected the production of aconitine-type alkaloids, demonstrating that the contents of mesaconitine and hypaconitine were higher at 20°C than at 15 and 10°C.
