Abstract
A field experiment was conducted on“Effect of Growing Media and Indole Butyric Acid on Damask rose Cuttings (Rosa damascena Mill.) var. Ranisahiba”at Instructional Farm, Department of Floriculture and Landscaping, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalrapatan, Jhalawar during winter season 2012-13. Trial was laid out in strip-plot design with three replications. The investigation on rooting of Damask rose cuttings (Rosa damascena Mill.) var. Ranisahiba by using various concentration of IBA i.e. 50 ppm,100 ppm, 150 ppm, and 200 ppm along with control (distilled water)and grown in five growing media viz. Black cotton soil, banas sand, soil + soil (1:1), soil + sand + vermicompost (2:1:1) and soil + vermiompost (1:1).The results revealed that cuttings treated with 200 ppm IBA and grown in the mixture of soil + sand + vermicompost (2:1:1) gave early sprouting (7.75 days), maximum sprouting of cuttings (70.50%), maximum buds sprout per cutting (2.50), highest number of leaves per cutting (8.25), highest number of leaves per sprout (5.00),leaflet length (3.65 cm), leaflet width(2.27 cm), roots per cutting (20.25 roots), primary roots per cuttings (12.25), primary roots having secondary roots (6.50), length of root (7.05 cm), rooted cuttings (71.75%) and field survival percentage (71.25%) while maximum sprout length (8.88 cm) and diameter ofroot (1.86 mm) was noted in soil + vermicompost (1:1) and sand, respectively. The interaction effect of IBA and growing media was found to be significant as cuttings can be propagated with high success by treatment of cuttings with 200 ppmIBA grown in the mixture of soil + sand + vermicompost (2:1:1). Among all the concentration of IBA and different media, rooting of rose cuttings treated with 200 ppm IBA under soil + sand + vermicompost (2:1:1) gave good results.
