Gujarat Board Class X Science and Technology Chapter 15 Reproduction


             Layering is a method of artificial propagation in some plants. In this method, a part of the stem is pulled towards the ground and covered with soil (as shown in the diagram). Some weight is also put on the stem to prevent it from getting erect again. Soon, the covered part of the stem develops roots. This can now behave as an independent plant; hence, it is detached from the parent plant. Lemon and chrysanthemum plants can be propagated by layering method
