Expert Answer:

  • Plants like banana and rose that have lost their capacity to produce seeds can be easily propagated by the method of vegetative propagation.
  • Vegetative propagation is the process of formation of new plants from detached vegetative parts or propagules such as roots, stem, leaves, etc. of the parent plant
  • The new plants produced by vegetative propagation are genetically identical to the parent plants.
