Abstract: This paper deals with the propagation of seeds and vine stem cuttings of Gynostemma pentaphyllum to get a general idea of the effects of different propagation techniques on its propagation and growth.The results show that the sprouting ability of the seeds varied, however,the survival and rooting rate of the cuttings is basically the same among the different species(kinds)of G.pentaphyllum. The cuttings can generally be taken out from nursery for planting in 25 days,but the seedlings have to grow in the nursery for a period of 45～50 days,sometimes even longer.So it′s favorable to use cuttings rather than seedlings.
