How to Propagate

Depending on the plants you have and the method you want to use, the "How to" of Plant Prop will change.

Plant Propagation Research

It's your turn to be the teacher. You are going to research a plant propagation method and explain the following.

  • What is the main definition of the method?
  • What plants or types of plants is this method used for?
  • What are the steps for this method?
  • At least three resources (including the one provided for you).

You will pick a method from the list on the next slide. Complete the research for this method on a document to handout to your classmates.

The handout show be instruction friendly (in your own words) to teach your classmates about the method. Include a picture or series of pictures if necessary.


Below is a website to get you started for the method you choose to research.

We will be going over these on Thursday and then being propagating plants after.
