Monsoon rains are on their ascension. It is time to start some worthy planting rituals – cutting the existing stem, it’s grafting, and rooting. Everyone knows that, in the garden area, every plantation can exhibits magic during rain. Easy to grow Plants starts rooting faster and eventually blooms in a way that really looks supernatural.
Plantation Methods or Propagation of Plants:
Among these 7 methods, we can choose the best and easy to propagate plantation procedure, depending on plant characteristics.
1. Seed Propagation:
For seed germination, take some healthy seeds of a plant you want to grow.
- Directly put them into fertile and moist soil.
- Put these seeds into moist tissue paper and then immediately place this tissue in a plastic bag. when seedlings germinate, then transfer them into ready-to-plant soil.
2. Plant Cuttings:
You can grow the whole plant by using any of the three vegetative parts of a plant (you want to grow).
1: Stem Cuttings:
Take a 3 to 6′ long part of a parent plant’s soft or hard stem when the plant is not fully blooming. These cuttings should be taken by a sharp knife over a 45-degree angle and must have one or more nodes. Trim all the leaves and plant these cuttings into fertile soil.
2: Leaf Cuttings:
Some of the plants (mostly succulent plants) or indoor plants tend to grow from leaves. Just take a leaf from the plant with almost 1.5′ of the petiole. Insert that leaf into the soil from the petiole side.
3: Root Cuttings:
Some of the plants can grow from root cuttings. Take almost 5 to 6 root cuttings, each 2 to 6′ long from the plant. Hold the proximal end and make a straight cut on it. Now make a partial cut on its distal end on each cutting. Ties all of these cuttings with the same sides. Store them for 3 weeks in moist soil and then place them in your garden and let them grow.
This is the most suitable technique for perennial plants (that can live more than two years). For division, dig some part of your plant (including roots) and move it into prepared soil.
In this process, the bend of a branch is covered with soil. When covered in moist and fertile soil, the bent stem developed its own root system and let the stem grow as a whole plant.
For grafting, take a plant cutting and then join it on the stem of another plant. This joint must be placed carefully.
In this process, just take a bud from the parent plant and place it in soil or you can also place it on another plant (with a cut on it so that bud can fit and joint here).
7: Tissue Culture:
This is the most advanced technique usually used in labs and on large farms. A controlled media is developed to keep just a few parent plant tissues and let them grow as a whole plant.
