Abstract

The performance of stem cutting with IBA in different ornamental plants was investigated. The ornamental plants under study showed significant variation in respect of all the parameters, viz. number of leaves and roots per cutting, fresh and dry weight of leaves and shoots, length of roots per cutting, fresh and dry weight of roots per cutting, number of shoots per cutting after 15, 25, 35, 45 and 55 days. Ixora (Ixora chinensis) performed the best in respect of highest number (40.10) of leaves per cutting, longest roots (5.15cm) and fresh and dry weight of roots per cutting (1.35 fresh weight and 0.29gm dry weight). Both fresh and dry weight of leaves and shoots per cutting were highest in Poinsettia (Poinsettia pulcherima). Poinsettia also produced highest number (46.97) of roots per cutting. Mussaenda (Mussaenda erythroplylla) and Night Jasmine (Nyctanthes arbortristis) failed to produce any root.
