Aloe vera L. is a medicinal plant grown in different parts of the world. Several papers have reported the micropropagation of this plant and its response to different combinations of hormones. In this research, we used A. vera plants grown in south Iran. MS culture medium with twenty-three combinations of hormones were used, including some of those employed previously by other researchers. Ten media showed positive results and the best result was obtained using Kin (1 mg L(-1))+IAA (0.1 mg L(-1)) which has not been reported before. Produced plantlets rooted in free hormone MS medium and transferred into soil. The survival rate was 83%.
