WHAT IS SCIENCE BEHIND LAYERING?
 

Asked by upmaniousagarika 7th May 2016, 12:26 AM

Answer:
Layering is a method in which adventitious roots are induced to develop on a soft stem while it is still attached to the plant.
In layering, a branch of the plant is covered with some material and supplied with water to produce roots.
 
The process is as follows:
  • The lower branch of a plant is selected and a ring of the bark is removed from the stem.
  • The portion where the bark is removed is bent and covered with soil.
  • The branch is kept covered with the soil for a few days during which new roots start to develop on the branch.
  • The branch is then cut off from the parent plant and allowed to grow as an individual plant.
