The influence on the rooting of semi-hardwood cuttings was studied of IBA and NAA, 6 organic nutrient substances (glucose, sucrose, asparagine, and glutamic, oxalic and succinic acids), 3 levels of N and the presence or absence of leaves. The presence of large amounts of soluble carbohydrates in the cuttings, treatment with IBA and NAA and the presence of leaves all had a beneficial effect on root formation.
