No. Bryophyllum-Bigonia
1. Vegetative Propagation is the method of producing a new plant from the vegetative parts of the plant i.e. leaves, stem and roots.
2. In Bryophyllum and Begonia vegetative propagation takes place through leaves.
3. The leaf in the Bryophyllum plant is broad and has notches at its margins.
4. Buds arise from the notches. These buds are called epiphyllus buds.
5. When the buds drop off from the leaf and placed in soil, they develop into new plant with roots and small leaves.
6. The vegetative propagation in Bigonia takes place through leaves in the same manner as in Bryophyllum.
