Abstract
Mist Propagation is used extensively in Europe and North America to propagate a wide range of ornamental plants. In recent years experiments at East Mailing Research Station, England, with mist propagation for rooting cuttings of deciduous tree fruits have also been highly successful. Although Coffea Arabica cuttings are not difficult to root, the time required for rooting can be considerable; during the whole of this period careful daily watering is required. Mist propagation appeared to offer a means of overcoming these disadvantages. It was decided, therefore, to commence experiments with mist propagation in order to find a simpler and more effective method of propagating Coffea arabica.
