The effect of stock plant shading on the rooting of stem cuttings of F. benjamina Daniell and Starlight was investigated during 2002 in Poland. Light was reduced by net shading: 50% by one layer; and 96% by 4 layers. Stock plants were shaded for 8 weeks and subsequently acclimatized under natural light for 4 weeks. The cuttings collected from stock plants were rooted in peat:perlite at 1:1.
