The creation of additional plants through division, encouragement of keiki formation, or any various meristematic techniques, but not via seed.
Plants can reproduce in two ways. In the first, the old fashioned way, seeds are produced that include genetic material from two plants. The seed is planted, and it grows. The other is vegetatively. Some kinds of plants, especially climbing ones will produce roots if their stems are buried. This is a simple and naturally occuring kind of vegetative propagation. More often woody pieces of garden plants are trimmed from a plant, dipped in rooting hormone and kept under just the right light, temperature, and humidity conditions. The cutting sprouts roots and leaves and before long is a viable plant. This is the way virtually all commercially available roses are propagated.
Same as asexual or non-sexual propagation.
Asexual techniques for increasing plants, by cuttings, division, grafting, or layering.
propagation methods excluding seed.
A form of asexual reproduction in plants whereby new individuals develop from specialized multicellular structures (e.g. tubers, bulbs) that become detached from the parent plant. Examples are the production of strawberry plants from runners and of gladioli from daughter corms. Artificial methods of vegetative propagation include grafting (see graft), budding, and making cuttings.
Making new plants asexually, usually by taking cuttings or layering, etc.
the horticultural reproduction of plants by asexual means.
A form of asexual reproduction in which plants produce genetically identical offshoots (clones) of themselves, which then develop into independent plants.
the propagation of a plant by asexual means, as in budding, grafting, rooting, air layering, and tissue or cell culture.
Propagation by means of pieces of vegetation, i.e., sprigs or sod pieces.
Reproduction without the fun.
Vegetative propagation is a method of reproducing asexually; the offspring have the same genetic makeup as the parent.
