Presentation Transcript

  1. Plant Propagation Separation & Division

  2. Separation & Division Quick Facts: • Propagation is accomplished by the use of underground plant parts. • These parts have two functions: #1 Food Storage #2 Reproduction

  3. We take advantage of a natural plant reproduction process. Bulbs and corms are the reproductive structures that we use in separation. Separation Amaryllis Bulb Gladiolus Corm Pearson College http://www.pearson-college.uwc.ca/pearson/biology/asex/asex.htm

  4. Bulbs Flower Bud Foliage Leaves Bulb Scales Basal Plate BULBLETS

  5. Corm Cormels

  6. Propagation: • Bulbs form offsets or bulblets. • Corms form cormels. These structures can be separated when the plant dies back.

  7. Division Not a natural process Utilize Rhizomes, Tubers, & Tuberous Roots We must mechanically separate (cut away)

  8. Rhizome 2 new plants =

  9. Tuberous Roots

  10. Propagation: When plants are crowded, they may be divided They are removed from the soil by digging They are then cut--remember to leave an “eye”
