Root and leaf cuttings

In addition to cuttings made from new shoots, some plants can be propagated from other parts as well, in particular the roots and the leaves. The sections of root or leaf are placed in or on an appropriate growing medium so that they can develop new roots and shoots.

Some plants produce very-short stems and shoots, which can make taking cuttings very awkward, so another part of the plant has to be used.
