Abstract:
Two methods of vegetative propagation, stem cuttings under mist and air layering, were examined for the 'Desert Museum' hybrid palo verde and species of Cercidium, Parkinsonia, and Prosopis. Basal cuttings of 'Desert Museum' gave higher rates of rooting than apical cuttings and showed better rooting in April than September. Two-node cuttings produced more rooted cuttings for an equal stem length than three- or four-node cuttings. Cuttings of six other species and hybrids of Cercidium and Parkinsonia, as well as six species and hybrids of Prosopis, were also successfully rooted. Indolebutyric acid (IBA) in the range of 2,500 to 5,000 ppm generally improved rooting compared with no IBA treatment. Bottom heat of 30 to 35°C was required for high rooting rates for all species. Air layers of Prosopis chilensis averaged 94% rooting using stem diameters of 8 to 10 mm. IBA at 5,000 ppm improved rooting by 70% over 0 ppm. Air layers of Cercidium, Parkinsonia, and other species of Prosopis were also rooted.
