HideShow resource information
Which two ways can plants be cloned?
Cuttings or tissue culture
1 of 7
Describe the process of using cuttings for cloning
1. Cuttings are taken from the parent plant, each with a new bud on 2. The cuttings are kept in moist conditions until they are ready to plant 3. Genetically identical copies of the parent plant are produced

What are two advantages of using cuttings for cloning?
The plants can be produced quickly and cheaply
3 of 7
Describe the process of using tissue culture for cloning
A few plant cells are put in a growth medium with hormones and they grow into new plants, which are clones of the original plants

What are three advantages of using tissue culture for cloning?
The plants can be made very quickly, in very little space, and can be grown all year
