Abstract:Three different propagation methods, including single-node cuttings, budded cuttings and tissue culture, were used to produce miniature roses. Subsequently, the efficiency of propagation and the vigor and quality of potted miniature roses were compared. Our studies revealed the following: (1) Micropropagation is superior to conventional propagation methods for miniature rose production. (2) The budded-cutting method could potentially compete with micropropagation and single-node cuttings, especially for cultivars (e.g. 'Royal Sunblaze') whose canopy development is dependent on basal rather than lateral shoots. If the budded-cutting method is to be used instead of micropropagation and single-node cuttings, more research on reducing rooting from scion and improving the efficiency of budding work is necessary. (3) In the potted miniature rose industry, three plantlets as opposed to one plantlet per pot could be profitable if the greenhouse culture time is reduced.
