Abstract

The species of the Genus Ficus are ornamental plants in which rooting percentage is lower than in other plants. This is why we aimed, in our experiment, at multiplying this species using different rooting substrates and several rooting growth enhancers in guided climate factors hothouses. After the Ficus cuttings rooted, we could see that the conditions in these hothouses are optimal for this type of operation. After processing experimental data, we could see that both the three types of rooting substrates and the three rooting growth enhancers have different effects on the Ficus cuttings’ rooting percentage. The first plants that rooted were obtained about 30 days after being planted in the rooting substrate, and the duration of rooting was about 40 days. The conclusion we can draw from our experiments is that rooting and development in Ficus spp. depend on both the quality of the culture substrate and the amount of assailable nutrients in the culture substrate.
