SECTION 1



PLANT
PROPAGATION




Plant propagation is the process of increasing the number of plants
of a particular species or cultivar. There are two primary forms of
plant propagation: sexual and asexual.

In nature, propagation of plants most often involves sexual reproduction,
or the production of viable seeds. When exposed to proper environmental
conditions, these seeds germinate and grow into mature, reproductive
plants. Over the years, horticulturists have also developed asexual
propagation methods that use vegetative plant parts. This allows plants
to be created in ways that nature cannot duplicate.

PLANT
PROPAGATION
TYPES




Plant propagation is used to produce new plants from a desired parent plant.
There are two categories of plant propagation: asexual and sexual.



Asexual propagation

Asexual propagation is used to maintain selections of known identity and quality
and includes such techniques as division, air-layering, grafting and cuttings.
Asexual propagation creates plants that are genetically identical to the parent
plant.



Sexual propagation

Sexual propagation is a natural process resulting in a parent plant forming seeds
that create offspring that are not genetically identical to the parent plant, as
in asexual propagation.

Both types of propagation have positive attributes. Asexual propagation allows you
to reproduce or clone the parent plant exactly. This is especially useful when the
parent plant has desirable characteristics such as brilliant flowers or superior
fruit. Asexual propagation preserves the characteristics of the parent plant. The
plants produced by asexual propagation will also flower and fruit faster than those
produced by sexual propagation because plants grown from seed need to pass through
a juvenile period before they flower and fruit. Asexually propagated plants are
mature when they are propagated and begin to flower immediately. Sexual propagation
has several benefits as well. Growing from seed is cheap and easy. Growing plants
from seed produce offspring which are not genetically identical to the parent;
therefore, the propagated plant will be genetically diverse from the parent plant
which is a desired characteristic in a natural setting.
