Vegetative Propagation: There are several plants in which parts like roots, stem and leaves develop into new plants under appropriate conditions. This is the vegetative propagation. This property of vegetative propagation is used in methods such as layering or grafting to grow many plants like sugarcane, roses or grapes for agricultural purposes. Plants raised by vegetative propagation can bear flowers and fruits earlier than those produced from seeds. This methods make possible the propagation of plants such as banana, orange, rose and jasmine that have lost the capacity to produce seeds. All plants produced by vegetative propagation are genetically similar enough to the parent plant to have all its characteristics.
