Fallen leaves of "Bryophyllum" on the ground produce new plants where the leaves of rose do not? Explain this difference between the two plants?

Expert Answer:

Vegetative reproduction is a type of reproduction in which new plants are produced from the vegetative parts of the plants such as roots, stem, leaves, etc.
 
The leaves of byrophyllum show the capability of generating roots and shoots when detached from the parent plant. Such capability of regeneration lack in the leaf of rose plant. However, n rose plants, stem is capable of giving rise to root and shoot system. Hence, rose plant can be developed by using its stem.
