SUMMARY

Results of the present study show that it is possible to propagate the sisal plant (Agave sisalana Perrine) by means of outer leaves from the bulbils formed in the inflorescence. Such leaves, when the lower ends were placed in water or a nutrient solution, were found to form roots within a month. When these rooted leaves were transplanted to flower pots with rich earth, buds were developed that formed normal plants. In some cases the plants so grown developed leaves with spines and in other cases they developed leaves without spines.
