Plant Propagation from Cuttings Growers want to produce new plants which are exactly like the mother plants that are found in the home, garden, nursery or greenhouse. To produce a plant which is genetically identical to the mother plant clonal (vegetative ) propagation is needed. Propagation by the rooting of cuttings (adventitious root formation), root cuttings and division, stooling, layering, grafting and budding, and similar techniques can produce the desired clonal results. The selection of the method is dependant upon the plant variety. Propagation from seed while suitable for many plants, especially annual plants, often produce variable results. In-vitro propagation, a relatively new technique, requires specialized equipment and many times does not produce new plants as expected.
