The experiment has been conducted to achieve a method for multiple-shoot induction with apical buds collected from mature tree of Ficus carica L., family Moraceae using Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with different growth regulators giberellic acid (GA3), benzyladenine (BA), kinetin (Kin). Data indicated that (BA) at the rate of 5 mg/L and (GA3) at 1 mg/L enhanced shoot multiplication. The best number of leaves was obtained from medium supplemented with 3 mg/L (BA) combined with (GA3) at 1 mg/L. In addition, plant length increased when (GA3) was added alone at 1 mg/L, followed by (GA3) combined with either (Kin) at 5 mg/L or (BA) at 3 mg/L compared with the control and the difference was significant.
