Plant propagation is the deliberate reproduction of plants through sexual or asexual means in a controlled environment with a desired outcome.
I now want to know more about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
We looked quickly at the anatomy of a terminal shoot and a leaf.
And then jumped in to three methods of propagation by leaf cutting: leaf petiole, leaf section, and split vein.
We cleaned the pots with water, then 10% bleach, then rinsed with water.
We got a tour of the greenhouses.
The growing medium was 2 parts perlite to 1 part peat moss.
We did cuttings from three different plants.
And placed them under the misters in the greenhouse.
