What is plant propagation? 

Plant propagation is the process of multiplying plants. Although plants can be propagated in numerous ways. These include seeds, cuttings, layering, and division. Generally, there are two types:

  • Sexual propagation involves the use of floral parts to create a new plant from two parents.
  • Asexual propagation involves the vegetative parts to create a new plant using one parent.



Sexual Plant Propagation Techniques:

One of the most common methods of propagating plants sexually is through seeds. There are four factors influencing successful seed plant propagation: heat, light, water, and oxygen.

Asexual Types of Plant Propagation:

The most common methods of asexual propagation include cuttings, layering, and division.
