Artificial Vegetative Propagation

HideShow resource information

There are three main methods for artificial vegetative propagation:

Taking cuttings

A stem is first cut between two nodes and then treated with plant hormones to encourage root growth before it is planted. 

Grafting

The shoot of a woody plant is joined to the stem of a plant which is already growing (This is known as rootstock). 

Using a tissue culture- LARGE SCALE CLONING -Micropropagation 

We can use tissue cultures in order to generate huge numbers of genetically identical plants from a small amount of plant material. The steps for the process of micropropagation…
