A review: Multiplication of Bougainvillea species through cutting


Author(s): Krishan Kumar Singh

Abstract: Propagation by cutting is very popular method of multiplication of several ornamental plants. But it has a limited success in the propagation of bougainvillea because most of its cultivars are hard–to-root. Plant bioregulators has been used extensively for initiation of rooting in cuttings of bougainvillea. Hardwood cuttings showed better growth than softwood cuttings. Profuse rooting and maximum survival in hardwood cuttings were found in Blondie, Elizabeth, Pixi and Sundari cultivars of Bougainvillea. Survival and rooting percentage was higher in July and September cuttings than in February cuttings.
