An experiment was conducted on “Ficus pumila cuttings” at horticulture nursery the University of Agriculture Peshawar, Pakistan during 2022. Semi hardwood cuttings were taken from one year old shoots which were cut to have 4-5 nodes each in plastic bags. The plastic bags were filled with a mixture of sand, clay and FYM (2:1:2). Calculated final average length was 13.83cm represented and average of final data was recorded. Average of initial data was (12.9cm) and final data was (13.83cm). There was a significant difference between the two means. Results showed a great variation in length (93.65 %). It was concluded from the study that propagation showed variability in plant length. Therefore, recommended as best method in young plant in nursery.
