Softwood & Semi-hardwood stem cuttingsWhen to take cuttings after current or present seasons growth has partially hardened should be able to bend
Stem Cuttings Collecting cutting woodparent plant that has made 2 to 6 inches new growth during current year early morning is the best time to take cuttings
Stem Cuttings Place cutting in water immediately after taking cuttingbe sure to remember which is the top of the cutting cut bottom at an angle cut top straight across
Stem Cuttings Preparing Container & Rooting mediacontainers must have holes in the bottom for drainage medium should be sterile mix medium before wetting to assure uniform mixture
Stem Cuttings Making the cuttingsmake as many 3 or 4 inch cuttings as possible from each shoot cut bottom at an angle allows more surface area to contact rooting media for water absorption
Stem Cuttings include 2 or 3 buds on each cuttingOn hollow stems, cut just below the node on the bottom and just above the node on top
Stem Cuttings Treating and Inserting Cutting“Rootone F” rooting hormone Chemicals which help cuttings grow more quickly and grow a larger number of roots rooting hormones may contain fungicide
Stem Cuttings place cutting in medium no more than 2 inches deepDo not press media around cutting, water to settle around it label cutting, include name of rooting hormone used
Stem Cuttings Controlling the atmosphere Keep R.H. close to 100%plant loses water through leaves (transpiration) can’t take up water fast enough to compensate without roots.
Stem Cuttings Enclose containers in clear plasticplace out or direct sunlight keep temp down
Stem Cuttings Rooting Check for roots by holding cutting and tugging gently resistance = roots developing growth on the tips or sides is normal, but does not indicate root growth
Stem Cuttings harden off when root ball is 2-3 inchesafter hardening off can be “lined out” planted outside
Herbaceous Cuttings Succulent greenhouse plantscan make numerous cuttings from parent plant cuttings 2-6 inches long
Herbaceous Cuttings remove bottom leavesroots will grow from the node where leaves were attached Use rooting hormone- ROOTONE not required speeds rooting process
Herbaceous Cuttings high humidity bottom heat helps speed rooting
Herbaceous Cuttings Leaf Cuttings African Violet Use leaf and petiole
Herbaceous Cuttings Leaf-bud cuttings cut bud and leaf from stemcut leaf to a smaller size requires less moisture
Herbaceous Cuttings firm into soil, water and cover in a moisture right container. Can make many more cuttings from parent plant than with stem cuttings rooting hormone should be weaker strength.
Herbaceous Cuttings Root CuttingsCan be made from any plant that will sprout or sucker from the root. Cut roots 1/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter in pieces 1-4 inches long.
Herbaceous Cuttings place in sand in a flat watercover with glass or plastic when new shoots sprout move plants to nursery row ex: raspberry

Building the Propagation Environment LAT 109. What does the propagation environment have to do? Depends… on what you’re propagating and where you are.
Floral Careers Plant Propagation. Meristematic: these are composed of actively dividing cells and are responsible for plant growth. ◦ apical meristems.
