Abstract

New plants are produced from the entire detached leaves or portions of leaves of Crassula multicava after about three weeks in moist chambers. Both roots and buds originate from epidermal cells not far from the wounded surface. So far as is known, this is the first report of a species in which an entire new individual arises from mature epidermal cells. Vascular connections with the parent leaf are established by divisions of the parenchyma cells between the new plant and a vein of the leaf.
