When I was younger, I enjoyed working in the garden with my mother. Plants have been a part of my life since I was born. My mother has a huge garden, so I have spent many hours observing the way she plants and watching things grow. This interest and background has caused me to ask the question of how plants grow and how they are propagated. There are different ways in which plants can grow and be propagated but in this experiment, I will deal with how plants grow from cuttings and the hormones that are involved in doing so. After reading the background information, I have decided that plants grown from cuttings will grow into a mature, healthy plant faster and easier than any other method of propagation.
