Botanical Name: Ficus carica
Other Names: Angir, Figue, Figo, Fico, Higo, Fikon, Vijg

Fig trees have been raised from seed, even seed extracted from commercial dried fruits. Ground- or air-layering can be done satisfactorily, and rapid mass multiplication by tissue culture has been achieved in Greece, but the tree is commonly propagated by cuttings of mature wood 2 to 3 years of age, 1 - 2 cm thick and 20 - 30 cm long. Planting must be done within 24 hours but, first, the upper, slanting end of the cutting should be treated with a sealant to protect it from disease, and the lower, flat, end with a root-promoting hormone.

Botanical Name: Psidium guajava
Other Names: Jaiphar, Guave, Goyave, Guayabe, Guaiava

Guava seeds remain viable for many months. They often germinate in 2 to 3 weeks but may take as long as 8 weeks. Guava trees cannot be depended upon to come true from seed, vegetative propagation is widely practiced.Guavas can also be grown from root cuttings. Pieces of any roots except the smallest and the very large, cut into 10-20 cm lengths, are placed flat in a prepared bed and covered with 5-10 cm of moist soil. The roots in the ground half to a metre away from the tree trunk can also be cut through which then sprout and can be dug up and transplanted.
