Multiplication of the varied plants is followed by many modes like by their seeds as well as by their vegetative parts including the various modified plant parts such as bulb, tuber, rhizome, corm etc. Mentha piperita L. is a aromatic plant of medicinal values after its pharmacological preparations. The plant is not capable to reproduce seeds but well adapted to multiply using their stem cuttings. Older stem cuttings are showing much efficiency in term of their mass multiplication using stem cuttings. Collected stem cuttings were introduced in Herbal Garden and applied for their rapid multiplication by using small parts of the mature stem cuttings. Soil with nutrients, well water facilities is supporting its reproduction vegetatively. Fifty poly bags were used for developing the new individuals of the Mentha piperita L. individually followed by fulfilling the requirements of developing stem cutting parts.rn
