Natural Vegetative propagation
- Buds develop in thick, fleshy roots which later, when put into soil develop into new plants
- Guava, sweet potato, dahlia
- Stems that grow horizontally above ground
- Examples: Grass, strawberry
- Potato’s tubers which are fleshy are underground storage structures. Buds give rise to aerial shoots under favorable conditions.
- Ginger’s rhizomes are modified stems found underground. Buds appear at their nodes which can give rise to new plants.
- Onion’s bulbs are short underground vertical shoots with thickened leaves. Roots emerge from underside of the stem.
- Buds are formed along leaf margins which later give rise to a new plant
- Examples: Bryophyllum
