Log Propagation Page 3 - Roots
Roots may emerge from the sides. This is why horizontal propagation is so effective; it allows a larger
root system to develop along the length of the section. Vertical planting has less rooting surface.
This is a tip section tossed onto the leaf mulch. It bent its tip upward and continued to grow. Notice how the horizontal section has a flabby appearance. The ribs have sucked in as the energy of the section was used by the growing tip. It is literally wasting away. But new roots have formed to supply nutrients and water to what is now a new plant.
