Plant from Pieces! Cloning and Divisions
October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
“Did you know that plants posses ‘Toti-potency’? It’s just another one of nature’s miracles – in that every living cell of a plant has the potential to grow all the other functional parts of a whole new plant! These methods of propagation are in essence ‘cloning’ which has advantages, but also some drawbacks. In this class we’ll look at a number of different plant families and species to learn about specific methods and mediums, and the critical timing necessary to get the best results from cuttings. We’ll also discuss the important life support systems necessary for a cutting to grow into a self-sufficient healthy plant. And we’ll practice one of the simplest methods of propagation by dividing some perennial plants: You’ll learn which species respond the best to this method, and when to do it!
