DIFFERENT METHODS AND WAYS ON HOW PLANTS CAN BE ASEXUALLY REPRODUCE

Plants can be planted directly to the soil or to the pot without doing any process. But for this matter, there could be a lot of ways for plants or even the fruit-bearing trees to grow. Some could be because of the seedlings, some might be because of the stem cutting process or even the asexual way reproduction. For this method, there could be a lot under this way. It promotes faster growing of the plant especially for those plants that have the same species. This will result to combine the different quality of each into one. For example, a red rose will be marcotted with a pink rose. This would have the possibility of having red and pink flowers. The people working under tree service would give you a better knowledge about fruit bearing trees and how are they undergo stem cutting and which one can be used and which one can’t be used. Below are some of the methods on how plants are being asexually reproduce.

  1. CUTTING OF THE ROOTS AND STEMS: This one is a very common way to reproduce another plant by coming from the main plant. It is popular to camote tops as the stem would be on the surface of the ground and then there would be a chance to produce roots coming from those stems. This is also common to some plants that have softwood part or hardwood sections.
  2. LAYERING TYPE OF REPRODUCTION: This one is needed some knowledge before you can totally perform this activity well. You need to cut the part of the stem that is good enough to use for your layering. You need a toothpick to suspend the edge from getting dry. You need to wrap the area with a peat moss with another part of the stem and then covered and wrap it with a plastic covering. Wait for many weeks until roots become visible. By that time, you can remove the covering and ready to plant it on a pot or to the ground.
  3. BUDDING TYPE OF REPRODUCTION: This one is always happening when we have potatoes inside our refrigerator and we don’t use them for a long time. A new set of plant will develop and grow coming from the potato itself. Of course, this is a good way to produce potatoes. You can gently remove those small buds of plants and then plot them to the soil ground.
  4. DIVISION TYPE OF PLANT REPRODUCTION: grasses are the most common and best example for this type. When you dig them down there, you would see that they have small parts of roots and then you can separate them one by one from each other. By doing this, you could create more plants by detaching them from each other. This is not commonly done by many people now.
  5. MICROPROPAGATION WAY OF REPRODUCTION: This is the most difficult one to make. You need to have the tissue of the plant before you can develop a new plant. This is not usually use and common for farmers to use in making more plants.
