Abstract

Chrysanthemums, which are widely cultivated for loose flowers, cut flowers and potted plants all over the world, are commercially propagated by rooting of cuttings. In this study, cuttings with single floral bud from 12 different varieties viz., Pusa Anmol, Yellow star, Salora, Selection 5, Chandrika, Plant and seed choice, Pink, Suganda yellow, Paper yellow, HYDC 11, Neelima & Mother Theresa were taken and evaluated for rooting percentage, number of days for rooting, plant height, number of leaves, number of days for flower bud opening and flower diameter. Among various varieties evaluated, Pusa Anmol was found best suitable for rooting of floral bud cuttings. While, Paper yellow and Mother Theresa had not recorded any rooting.
