Propagation By Cuttings

Cuttings, Propagation By

 

a method of plant propagation by which a part of a plant is cut off and planted. Propagation by cuttings is used in fruit raising, ornamental horticulture, forestry, and the cultivation of certain industrial and medicinal plants. Root cuttings and stem cuttings (lignified stems without leaves or green stems with leaves) are most often used. Root cuttings are used to propagate raspberry, dewberry, young apple seedlings, and white poplar. Lignified stem cuttings are used to propagate currant, grape, quince, and fig. Green stem cuttings with two or three leaves are used to propagate currant, plum; cherry, grape, and certain varieties of gooseberry. Leaf cuttings are used to propagate begonia, violet, and some other plants.
