  2. For Example in ornamental plants with attractive flowers and leaves or any other interesting variatiion in one plant can be continued in next generation through vegetative propagation.
  3. Such plants can be produced in large numbers in a short time.
  4. Vegetative reproduction offers uniform root stock for budding or grafting.
  5. This root stock can be selected from a plant that is immune to diseases.
  6. In this method it would be possibSle to develop new varieties with useful characters.
