transplant (cutting) establishment. Previous research attributed yield differences to cultivar, propagation material, environmental, and soil factors ( Kays, 1985 ; Ravi and Indira, 1999 ). Bare-rooted transplants produced adventitious roots and some of

biological characteristics of adventitious roots after application of exogenous auxin. Although these studies have provided important information concerning the action of this hormone, the mechanism of auxin in adventitious root induction has not been clearly

, and repeated three times. After 35 d, the cuttings were evaluated for adventitious rhizogenesis: 1) rooting percentage, 2) number of roots per rooted cutting, and 3) average root length. To test significant differences of this experiment, data were

cycad species produce adventitious stems especially near the base of the main stem, and these are known as “pups” ( Norstog and Nicholls, 1997 ; Stopes, 1910 ; Tang, 1985 ). Adventitious roots (AR) are often induced on these detached pups during

expression of several genes, which are influenced by several environmental factors ( Ravi et al., 2009 ). Transplanted slips produce adventitious roots, some of which develop into economically important storage roots through proliferation of cambial cells
