A scaled-up culture vessel was designed for the large-scale photoautotrophic micropropagation of chlorophyllous plants. The culture vessel (volume 20 l) contained a plug cell tray with 448 plantlets, and had a forced ventilation system to supply CO2-enriched air. A nutrient-reservoir was connected to the culture vessel from which nutrient solution was circulated to the culture vessel every 24 h. Nodal leafy cuttings of Eucalyptus camaldulensis L. were cultured photoautotrophically in this system without sugar in the nutrient medium, but with an enriched CO2 concentration and a high photosynthetic photon ¯ux. The growth and the net photosynthetic rate of the in vitro grown plantlets and the survival percentage of the plantlets after transplanting to ex vitro conditions were compared with those of plantlets grown photoautotrophically under natural ventilation in conventional small culture vessels (Magenta-type vessels; volume 0.4 l). Fresh and dry masses and net photosynthetic rate were signi®cantly higher in plantlets grown in the scaled-up vessel compared to plantlets grown in the conventional small vessels (control). The environmental conditions created in this scaled-up vessel (with forced ventilation) also facilitated acclimatization in vitro. Importantly, after transplanting to the ex vitro condition, plantlets grew well without any specialized ex vitro acclimatization treatment.
