Vegetative propagation of Gliricidia sepium

Nitrogen Fixing Tree Research Reports 4: 62-63

Vegetative propagation of Gliricidia sepium

Softwood (<6 months old) and mature wood (6-12 months old) cuttings, 20 cm long, were rooted under 2 watering regimes (1 min mist every 30 min or 3.5 min mist every 12 h) after no treatment, dipping in commercial hormone rooting powder or stripping bark for 5 cm at the base of the cutting. Rooting of softwood cuttings was unsuccessful. Both rooting powder and stripping bark increased survival of mature cuttings 35 days after establishment.
