Best Answer

• Plants can be propagated by ****** (through generation of seeds) or

asexual (through multiplication of vegetative parts) means.

• Asexual reproduction through multiplication of vegetative parts is the only

method for the in vivo propagation of certain plants, as they do not

produce viable seeds e.g. banana, grape, fig, and chrysanthemum.

• The in vivo clonal propagation of plants is tedious, expensive and

frequently unsuccessful.

• In vitro clonal propagation through tissue culture is referred to as micro

propagation.

• Use of tissue culture technique for micro propagation was first started by

Morel (1960) for propagation of orchids, and is now applied to several

plants. Micro propagation is a handy technique for rapid multiplication of

plants
