Results are presented on the influence of sterilizing compounds upon the yield of viable explants of Rhododendron in sterilized culture. Yield of viable explants is dependent upon type of sterilizing compound, species belonging of plant and type of explant. Results show, that 0,1% solution of silver nitrate is a most effective compound for sterilization of seeds of 8 Rhododendron species (sterilization for 5 minutes) and 0,1% solution of sublimate and diacid (sterilization for 8 minutes) are most effective for sterilization of buds of 4 Rhododendron species.
