In general plants do not require vitamins as do most animals. Plants
synthesize many of the vitamins that animals require. There is some
evidence that plants benefit from vitamins, though. When growoing plants
in tisssue culture, it is often helpful or even necessary to add some of
the B vitamins. Specifically B1, B6, niacin and B12 are used.
