Tomato cloning with an EZ-CLONE

Propagating plants and cloning your most favored varieties will ensure you always have your preferences available. Taking cuttings from a tomato plant is a great way to get your roots wet if you are new to the propagation world. Not only are tomatoes easy to grow and loved by most, they are easy to propagate as well, especially when using an EZ-CLONE Classic Plant Cloning System.

When looking at a tomato plant, you will notice where a leaf is growing from the stem, known as a node. This is where a new growth tip or shoot will emerge. These shoots may not be visible, but wherever there is a node, there is a chance for a new beginning. The space between the nodes is referred to as the inter-nodal space. Some species will have longer inter-nodal spacing, while others may grow very compact with limited space between nodes. You want to locate a section of stem that is about 4 to 8 inches long with hopefully at least two nodes.

By taking the time to look, acknowledge and record information daily, you will find yourself becoming more and more observant and aware, making it easier to identify problems at their earliest stages.
