White turmeric (Curcuma aromatica Salisb.) contains notable secondary metabolites with significant health benefits. However, the efficiency of traditional cultivation of white turmeric is limited by many environmental factors. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the large-scale production of superior-quality microrhizomes for cultivation and secondary metabolite extraction, without relying on natural rhizomes. In this study, the effects of sucrose, plant growth regulators (6-benzyl amino purine – BAP, kinetin – KIN,
