Propagation is the simple process of growing new plants from the cuttings of plants. Plants naturally produce chemicals known as auxins that help govern the growth of their roots and continual development. Learn which plants propagate more easily than others and how to prepare a cutting with a hands-on demonstration. Use this introductory propagation knowledge to start or expand your collection of plants at home.
