An experiment was carried out to study the reproduction mode of Adesmia latifolia. The experiment was conducted in greenhouse with plants of one access of this species. The plants after flowering were isolated individually and submitted to three treatments: mechanical stimulation, hand crossing and isolation. The results showed versatility of this species which could reproduce by cross-fertilization and self-fertilization.
