Abstract

Different substrates (BRT GreenMoss, perlite, white peat, coco coir, ASB Greenworld plant soil) were used during three cutting propagation trials of Philodendron erubescens, an ornamental climbing plant with attractive, large leaves. After examining morphological and physiological characteristics, I want to find the best substrates for the plants and ascertain the effects of substrates on the success of cutting propagation. As the results show, substrates, time of propagation and greenhouse temperatures also influenced certain parameters, especially shoot number. Warmer conditions (optimally 20-22 °C), optimal timing (cutting propagation: May, June, growing: summer) and effective substrates (BRT GreenMoss, ASB Greenworld plant soil or its combinations) resulted in the highest, largest values, mainly in the case of leaf length and width, shoot length, fresh green parts (leaves, shoots), total chlorophyll and carotenoid contents of leaves. Coco coir (and its mixture with BRT GreenMoss) also has positive effect on root and shoot development.
