How Are Plants Cloned?

Answer

One of the most popular methods of cloning plants cuttings is by taking a healthy stem cutting and providing it with a nutrient rich medium to grow in. Take a stem 6-8 inches long, with a couple of leaves on it so as to help speed the rooting process through photosynthesis. Fill in the sterilized holder with the growing medium, and gently force the stem cutting in it. For cloning plants in water, make sure the water is distilled and mixed with rooting solution. Stem cuttings are mostly used for cloning flowering plants.
