Abstract: Bamboo plants are an essential element in Indian socioeconomics and ecological development. Traditionally food, construction materials, antiques, and raw materials for pulp and paper manufacture have all benefited from the use of bamboo. Bamboo is a highly renewable plant. However most bamboo species has long flowering cycle. Moreover many species do not produce viable seed. The selected genotype can be spread effectively through vegetative propagation. because the mass replication of clonal planting material made it feasible to employ better genetic material for the construction of seed orchards, nutrition experiments, increasing hybrids with more accurate genetic makeup for testing, and the establishment of big industrial plantations . Hence cloning by rooting of cuttings has advanced significantly. The difficulty of traditional vegetative propagation techniques and the lack of readily available planting material for bamboo are perennial issues. In lieu of breeding, vegetative propagation is a quick means to spread. During vegetative propagation, the young plant receives the entire genetic potential of the parent plant, including non-additive variance. Vegetative population aids in maximizing genetic improvements in the quickest amount of time. Numerous variables affect vegetative propagation's ability to succeed, including the cuttings' physiological condition, genetic makeup, and habitat.
