ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION IN PLANTS

NATURAL METHODS

1)     The parent strawberry plant sends out runners – fast-growing stems that grow out sideways, just above the ground

2)     The runners take root at various points (a short distance away) and new plants start to grow

 3)     The new plants are clones of the parent strawberry plant, so there’s no genetic variations between them 

ARTIFICIAL METHODS

1)      

  • Take cuttings from parent plants, and then plant them to produce genetically identical copies
