Stem cuttings are out growing stems or mature sprouts or tip cuttings. Many types of stem cuttings may be taken.

  • Soft wood cuttings are from the young soft tips of stems. Usually the soft wood cuttings are taken in the Spring from fast growing tips of stock plants.
  • Tip or shoot cuttings are similar to soft wood cuttings taken from herbaceous plants such as tropical or house plants. These plants do not usually develop woody stems.
  • Green wood cuttings are from the soft tip or stem after the spring growth has slowed down. The stem is somewhat harder and woody than the soft wood cutting.
  • Semi-ripe cuttings are taken during the late summer after the annual growth has slowed down. The stem is harder than soft wood or green wood cuttings.
  • Hard wood cuttings are from dormant fully mature stems, usually from the current years growth.

Other types of cuttings

  • Scion cuttings are dormant 'ligneous' woody twigs.
  • Eye cuttings are pieces of foliated or defoliated stalks with one or more eyes.
  • Root cuttings are part of the root, usually annual. These are taken from certain plants which have the capacity to regenerate stems from root parts.
  • Leaf cuttings are from parts of the leaf. New roots develop at the base or veins of the cutting.
  • Graft cuttings are produced by first making a graft of a scion cutting onto a root stock. Rooting and grafting take place at the same time. This method is also called stenting. Some roses are propagated by this method.
  • Root grafting is used to multiply difficult to root plants. A shoot or scion is grafted onto an under stem. Pieces from the under-stem produces new roots usually when taken from one year old plants.
