Abstract
Softwood cuttings of Western soapberry plant (Sapindus drommondii Hook and Arns) were dipped for 5 seconds in 5 000, 10 000, 20 000, and 30 000 ppm of IBA, IBA + NAA and NAA solutions. The treated cuttings were inserted in a rooting medium consisting of 3 parts peat moss and 7 parts perlite. The results revealed that application of different concentrations of IBA or IBA + NAA was associated with greater values of rooting percentage and number, length and fresh weight of roots compared to the control. The least values of these measured parameters were associated with application of NAA at different concentrations, especially at the highest concentration (30 000 ppm).
