STRIPPING VS. NONSTRIPPING ON ROOTING OF WOODY ORNAMENTAL CUTTING — GROWER RESULTS
Dale M. Maronek, Daniel Studebaker, Thomas Mccloud, Vern Black and Ronald St. Jean
The effect of two different wounding treatments on rooting of cuttings was determined for 19 species. Rooting of stripped (wounded) or nonstripped cuttings varied by species. Differences on root morphology were found among stripped and nonstripped cuttings of some species. The nonstripping treatment saved considerable time during the cutting preparation process. However, the probable money saved during cutting preparation was offset by increased time for collection of suitable wood, sticking of cuttings, and/or the area of space needed to propagate the nonstripped cuttings.
