Tip: PLANT PROPAGATION: ASEXUAL PROPAGATION




I found a great site that explains all about grafting, and is good information for a newbie who really wants to learn, but does not know enough. The site is available at this link. An extract from the site:
“The major methods of asexual propagation are cuttings, layering, division, and budding grafting. Cuttings involve rooting a severed piece of the parent plant; layering involves rooting a part of the parent and then severing it; and budding and grafting is joining two plant parts from different varieties.”
The site explains in detail about what cutting is, basically a small section of the original plant cut in order to grow into a new plant. And then it explains about how to prepare cuttings, including cleaning, inserting into a medium, and then explains about the various types of cuttings such as stem cuttings, tip cuttings, medial cuttings, cane cuttings, single eye, double eye, heel cutting, leaf cuttings, root cuttings.
The site also explains about layering, (which is basically using a section of stem that can grow new roots), about grafting, budding.
