dc.description.abstract A study was conducted to test the effects of rooting hormones on African violet leaf cuttings taken from asexual offsprings of a single parent plant, "Blue Boy." Distilled water (control) and four hormones, "Rootgro", "Transplantone", "Hormodin" and "Rootone" were used in this experiment. Selected leaf cuttings were grown in vermiculite filled pots and watered with the appropriate solutions. These pots were placed randomly in a gridded biogrowth chamber which was set at 18 C with 65 % humidity and a 14 hour day. The results of this study indicated that leaf cuttings grown in distilled water produced healthy young plants as quickly as any of the commercial hormones. en_US
