Vegetative propagation

1. SUCKER SEPARATION -- For example: banana, pineapple


BANANA


PINEAPPLE

2. CORM DIVISION - For example: banana, gabi (taro)


Picture 32

3. STEM OR ROOT CUTTING - For example: rimes, siniguelas


Picture 33

4. MARCOTTING OR AIR-LAYERING - For example: chico

Remove a ring of bark from a branch.


Picture 34

Gently scrape off cambium.


Picture 35

Apply a pall of rooting medium. Wrap with a sheet of plastic, coconut leaf sheath or any material that could help prevent drying-up.


Picture 36

Tie both ends.


Picture 37

Wait for roots to fully develop. Cut stem below ball and unwrap sheet.


Picture 38

Plant the marcot.


Picture 39

5. INARCHING - For example: rambutan

Make a side cut on rootstock (A) and scion branch (B)


Picture 40

Join rootstock and scion together. Tie with a string.


Picture 41

After 1-3 months or upon complete union, cut above rootstock and below the scion.


Picture 42

6. CLEFT GRAFTING - For example: mango

Make vertical incision on rootstock.


Picture 43

Cut scion budstick into a short wedge.


Picture 44

Insert budstick into rootstock.


Picture 45

Wrap union with thin strip made of plastic, cloth dipped in wax, or any material that could help prevent drying up.


Picture 46

Cover with plastic bag or anything that could help reduce drying up.


Picture 47

Remove plastic bag as new shoot emerges.

Remove strip before planting.


Picture 48

7. PATCH BUDDING - For example: santol

Remove a rectangular piece of bark from rootstock (A) scion (B).

Fit scion bud into cut on rootstock


Picture 49

Cover with a thin strip of plastic or any material that could help reduce drying up.


Picture 50

After 2 weeks, remove strip to expose bud. Cut back rootstock above union.


Picture 51

8. SHIELD BUDDING - For example: calamansi

Make an inverted T cut on the bark of rootstock (A)


Picture 52

Remove a shield bud from scion (B)


Picture 53

Insert bud into rootstock.


Picture 54

Cover with a thin strip of plastic or any material that could also prevent drying up.


Picture 55

After 2 weeks, remove plastic strip to expose bud. Cut back rootstock above union.
