PIO, Rafael et al. Substrates in the rooting of fig tree herbaceous cuttings originated from the sprouting. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2005, vol.29, n.3, pp. 604-609. ISSN 1413-7054. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542005000300014.
The present work had the objective to verify the rooting of fig tree cuttings originating from sprouting, through the use of different substrates. Herbaceous cuttings were collected of 'Roxo de valinhos' fig tree with 10 cm of length when the sprouting was happening. The cuttings with two leaves and not of the apical bud to conditioned in polypropylene trays containing different substrates: casca de pinus®, vermiculita®, coconut fiber®, plantmax®, soil + cow mature(1:1 v/v) and tropstrato® . The cuttings were placed at greenhouse, under humidity and temperature control. After 50 days, the rooting, sprouting and death cutting percentage, the number of leaves and roots of each cutting were evaluated. The substrates coconut fiber® and plantmax® promoted better results.
