Weeping figs in the south of China can grow to be a large tree, but in the north it is more bonnets. Propagation methods of Weeping fig are not very difficult, as long as attention is established to establish a suitable growth environment and scientific maintenance of Weeping fig. Generally, propagation methods of Weeping fig include cutting, layering and grafting, and tissue culture.
Cutting propagation method of Weeping fig should be carried out in May ~ June. Cut the top twig, 10 ~ 12 cm long, leave 2 ~ 3 leaves, lower leaves are cut off, scissors mouth should be flat, scissors mouth often secrete milk, use clean water to go, dry after cutting. The room temperature is 24 ~ 26℃, and keep a high air humidity, after 30 days it can take root, about 45 days to plant pot.
Layering propagation methods of Weeping fig is carried out from May to July. Select the healthy branches from the previous year, 15 cm from the top of the ring peeled, 1.5 cm wide, with leaf rot soil and plastic wrap, at 25℃, 15 to 20 days rooting, 30 days cut from the mother plant directly potted.
In spring, indoor basin sowing was used. The appropriate temperature for germination was 24 ~ 27℃. After sowing, the soil was covered with 0.5 cm and kept wet for about 20 ~ 30 days.
Grafting propagation methods of Weeping fig can be carried out in spring and summer. Weeping fig trees (2 ~ 3 years old) and 15 ~ 20 cm long scions (15 ~ 20 cm long) are stock stock (stock stock) with high survival rate. Then cultivate 1 ~ 2 years into the commodity.
Stem tips were routinely disinfected and inoculated on MS medium supplemented with 0.5 mg/l 6-benzylamine and 1 mg/l indolebutyric acid to form clusters of unequal size after 60 days of culture. Seedlings of 3 cm or more were selected, the base of the seedlings was dipped in 0.01% indolebutyric acid solution under aseptic conditions, immediately removed and transferred to hormone-free MS medium, and new roots were grown 15 to 25 days later.
