The act of propagating; continuance or multiplication of the kind by generation or successive production; as, the propagation of animals or plants.
Producing multiple plants from a single plant.
Plants can be propagated sexually (via seed) or asexually (through cuttings, layering, grafts, or root/bulb division). Propagation should always be performed with clean, sterilized tools to prevent the spread of disease. Plants undergoing asexual propagation undergo stress and special consideration should go toward providing it nutrients that can be easily absorbed (see liquid fertilizers). In the case of cuttings, root hormones or willow water should be considered.
Propagation is the reproduction of plants, and is accomplished by two different means. One is by seeds or spores (the normal reproductive process of plants), the other is by vegetative propagation, which involves cuttings, layers, division, separation, or graftings. See ' Growing the Hallucinogens'
Producing new plants from seeds, leaves, spores, or other plant parts.
increasing plants through vegetative processes or seed.
Making new plants either from seed, taking cuttings or layering.
Increasing the numbers of plants through cuttings, seeds or divisions.
in plants, the production of more plants through seeds or vegetative division.
the horticultural reproduction of plants by sexual or asexual means.
Increasing of stock by means of seeds or by rooting cuttings (see article on this site).
Reproducing plants by planting seed, taking cuttings, layering, grafting or dividing them.
Production of new plants. With regard to African Violets, propagation can be accomplished by a number of methods. African Violets can be propagated from seed, leaf cutting, peduncle cutting, tissue culture or by rooting a sucker. Also see Division and Separation.
Various methods of starting new plants ranging from starting seeds to identical clones created by cuttings or layering.
to increase the number of plants by sexual or asexual means Protozoans - organisms made up of a single cell or a group of basically identical cells.
In gardening usage, this refers to the many different ways of starting new plants.
To cause a plant, by various methods; division, taking cuttings, sowing seeds, to multiple from the parent stock.
The process of increasing the number of plants either by seed or by vegetative methods.
Regeneration of new plants by means other than seed, e.g. by rooting cuttings.
