FRANCO, Danilo et al. Cutting as cloning process of bacuripari (Redhia gardneriana Miers ex Planch e Triana). Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.1, pp. 176-178. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452007000100037.
In Brazil there are several native fruitful with commercial potential, specially in Amazon which is the origin of bacuripari species. Thus it was carried out a research work aiming to evaluate the viability of cutting process on bacuripari cloning, using indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) under conditions of intermittent mist, on FCAV/UNESP, Jaboticabal County, Brazil. The experimental design was completely randomized with 5 treatments, characterized by IBA concentrations (0; 1,000; 3,000; 5,000 and 7,000 mg.L-1), with 4 repetitions and 10 cuttings per parcel. It was evaluated the percentage of cuttings rooted, the average number of leaves and the length of roots. The use of IBA had no influence on percentage of cuttings rooted.
