Asexual Propagation of Patchouli
Known in the international market as the “oil of patchouli,” this important essential oil comes from the patchouli plant which rarely produces seeds. Thus, large-scale cultivation of patchouli necessitates the use of asexual propagation. Rather than using full-noded (one or two nods) cuttings, the technology involves using a half-node cutting with a potential auxiliary bud. Use of this half-node cutting increases the plant’s growth four to six times. To increase the root development in patchouli, auxins such as IBA and NAA are used. The cuttings are dipped for 20 seconds in 1000 ppm of these plant growth regulators to improve root formation.
