Author(s): DK. Patel
Abstract: Plant diversity includes a variety of species of the plants with variation in their habit, growth pattern and mode of reproducing new individuals like their parental ones. In connection to above points plants are capable to producing numerous seeds as a new source of plant development. All plant cannot perform the same procedure for seed development. In this condition a major group of plant species are widely grown/propagated using their vegetative modes for same purpose. Except the vegetative parts like root, stem, leaf etc the modified structures of the plants are also found to be efficient to regenerate new plants such as bulb, tuber, rhizome corm etc. in the presence of suitable environmental condition. Present study made in Herbal garden to develop new plants of Adhatoda vasica Linnby using its mature stem cuttings in poly bags filled with soil, sand and manure mixture equally followed by supply of required materials to the developing new plants fron stem cuttings.
