There are layering, division, grafting and cutting methods for propagating Mangosteen. Layering propagation method: the mother plant branches pressure into the soil, the root can survive. Division propagation method: The separation of the bulbs from the mother plant and replanting. Grafting propagation method: The grafting of a branch or bud into another plant. Cutting propagation method: cut off the roots, stems or leaves of plants for use, insert them into the soil, take root after normal maintenance. The fillowing are details of Mangosteen propagation methods.
The seeds of Mangosteen are parthenogenesis, that is, asexual reproduction, so the main methods of propagation are the following: layering method, division method, grafting method, cutting method.
The layering propagation method of mangosteen involves pressing the branches of the mother plant into the soil and using certain methods to make it take root and obtain new plants. The layering propagation method of mangosteen is more convenient to operate, and the layering generally does not need any special management, so the survival rate is generally high. This is a method of propagation often used for woody flowers.
The division propagation of mangosteen is generally to separate the bulb and rhizome parts of the plant from the plant, and then plant them into new plants. This method is divided into two methods: half division and whole division.
Grafting propagation method of mangosteen
The grafting propagation method of mangosteen is done by grafting a branch or bud of the mangosteen onto another plant and allowing the two parts to grow into a complete plant. The branch or bud attached to it is called a scion, and the plant used as a carrier is called a stock.
The cutting propagation method of mangosteen involves cutting off the roots, stems or leaves of the plant, inserting them into the soil and growing them into whole new mangosteen. These are called scions, and mangosteen is usually bred all year round.
