A type of asexual reproduction employed by plants wherein new independent individuals emerge from the vegetative parts of plants, such as specialized stems, leaves, roots, and not from seeds or spores.


Examples include the formation of plantlets on specialized leaves (e.g. kalanchoe), the growth of new plants out of rhizomes or stolons (e.g. strawberry), or the formation of new bulbs (e.g. tulips).

Also called: vegetative propagation or vegetative multiplication
