Abstract

A cutting is in a thermodynamically unfavourable state from the time it is prepared [1]. Part of the physical and physiological support, the root system, is gone. Only a new root system can restore ‘whole plant’ thermodynamics and sustain life. Altered metabolism in a cutting regenerates the root system.
