Plant from Pieces! Cloning and Divisions
Did you know that plants posses ‘Toti-potency’? It’s just another one of nature’s
miracles - in that every living cell of a plant has the potential to grow all the
other functional parts of a whole new plant! These methods of propagation are
in essence ‘cloning’ which has advantages, but also some drawbacks.
In this class we’ll look at a number of different plant families and species to learn
about specific methods and mediums, and the critical timing necessary to get the
best results from cuttings. We’ll also discuss the important life support systems
necessary for a cutting to grow into a self-sufficient healthy plant. And we’ll practice
one of the simplest methods of propagation by dividing some perennial plants:
You’ll learn which species respond the best to this method, and when to do it!
