No Sex? No Problem! Asexual Propagation of Plants


Monday, March 12, 2018, 7:00pm to 8:00pm


Hunnewell Building

Many plants, unlike humans, can be replicated absent sexual reproduction. Some do this readily while others need assistance or special circumstances. Arnold Arboretum propagator Sean Halloran will speak about the biology and physiology of asexual reproduction in plants and the variety of techniques that can be used to produce more plants. He will describe the characteristics and parts amenable to asexual propagation and explain the appropriate technique(s) to use for one genus versus another. This lecture will include insights into grafting, air layering, rooting cuttings, and more.
