NY118 - Clonal Propagation from Difficult Cuttings of Ornamental Plants by Dynamic Pulse Propagation

Hydropropagation “dynamic Pulse” is the propagation of cuttings in a recycling solution. The cuttings are supported in channels by polypropylene beads. The recycling solution temperature can be heated for optimal rooting response. The hydropropagation system works excellently for some crops but the total failure to produce roots in other crops indicates that further research and development is needed before this method could be used universally for all crops.
