That the leaves of a number of plants may be utilized as a means of propagation is appreciated in both the practical and theoretical field. The precise manner of such vegetative propagation has been investigated by the author in two cases, Bryophyllum and Tolmiea. These are representatives of a type which is to be contrasted with the Begonia type. A restatement of the morphological principles involved in well known cases of propagation by leaves has been attempted.
