Vegetable Propagation

Vegetable Propagation | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Propagate your own vegetables with this science project! You'll learn about leaf cutting, stem cutting, and layering, and see which method works best.


The hypothesis is that one of the methods of vegetative propagation will be the most effective for propagating the plant.

Method & Materials

You will select a healthy plant to work with, consult with your partner and instructor to decide which two methods of vegetative propagation to use, and then follow the instructions for each method.
You will need a healthy plant, rooting hormone, soil, and water.


The experiment showed that one of the methods of vegetative propagation was the most effective for propagating the plant. The leaf cutting method was the most successful, with adventitious roots developing at the base of the petiole.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting and unique because it allows students to explore different methods of vegetative propagation and see which one works best.

Also Consider

Experiment variations to consider include using different types of plants, different rooting hormones, and different soil types.
