Types of Plant Cuttings Used To Propagate New Plants

Stem cuttings are out growing stems or mature sprouts or tip cuttings. Many types of stem cuttings may be taken.

 

    • Soft wood cuttings are from the young soft tips of stems. Usually the soft wood cuttings are taken in the Spring from fast growing tips of stock plants.
    • Tip or shoot cuttings
 are similar to soft wood cuttings taken from
herbaceous plants such as tropical or house
  •  plants. These plants do not usually develop woody stems.
  • Green wood cuttings are from the soft tip or stem after the spring growth has slowed down. The stem is somewhat harder and woody than the soft wood cutting.
  • Semi-ripe cuttings are taken during the late summer after the annual growth has slowed down. The stem is harder than soft wood or green wood cuttings.
  • Hard wood cuttings are from dormant fully mature stems, usually from the current years growth.
