Dendrobium officinale was widely used as a rising valuable forest Chinese medicinal herb in recent years in China. By the systematical researches on seed aseptic germination, protocorm induction and proliferation, rooting and hardening-off culture, seedling transplanting and tending, the highly efficient regeneration system and domestication transplanting technology for D. officinale were established. The results showed that 1/2 MS without any phytohormone is the optimal medium for seed aseptic germination of D. officinale, the medium suitable for protocorm induction and proliferation is MS + 1.0 mg/L 6-BA (6-Benzylaminopurine) +1.0 mg/L NAA (1-Naphthaleneacetic acid) +1.0 mg/L KT (kinetin) according to the orthogonal tests, the optimal medium for rooting and hardening-off culture of D. officinale is 1/2 MS+ 0. 2mg /L IBA (3-indolebutyric acid) + 0.5% activated carbon + 40% potato extract, and the corresponding seedling transplanting medium is the 1:1:5 combination of vermiculite, perlite and humus soil. The high-efficient regeneration and transplanting technique obtained will contribute to the industrialized seedling production of Biomedical D. officinale.
