Abstract: The effect of propagation by nodal cutting on six different Piper species and their performance were studied at Horticultural College and Research Institute, Periyakulam. The six Piper spp. namely Piper colubrinum, Piper hymenophyllum, Piper longum, Piper attenuatum, Piper nigrum and Piper betle, were utilized for this study and was laid out in a completely randomized design with 4 replications. The results of this experiment are revealed that the performance of Piper colubrinum superior on number of sprouts (1.36) and length of sprouts per cuttings (1.42 cm) as compared to other Piper species. The higher rooting percentage (82.24 per cent) also recorded in the species Piper colubrinum. Hence, the species (Piper colubrinum) can be effectively propagated through stem cuttings and thereby the faster multiplication rate can also be obtained.
