The experiment was carried out during year 2014 at the field Horticulture Garden of C. C. R. (P.G.) College, Muzaffarnagar (U.P.).The experiment comprised of the types of cuttings and NAA concentration. The type of cuttings ( hard wood, semi hard wood and soft wood) were treated at 0 ppm, 1500 ppm, 3000 ppm and 4500 ppm of NAA Treated cuttings were planted in factorial R.B.D. with 12 treatments. NAA at 4500 ppm caused earlier sprouting over control. NAA at 1500 ppm improved the length of the shoot and number of leaves. Number of roots, length of the roots, rooting percentage and survival percentage were improved at 4500 ppm in case of Jasminum humile. While mortality percentage increased under hard wood cutting at 1500 and 3000 ppm concentration of NAA. Moreover, mortality percentage was highest in control. Semi hard wood cuttings treated with 4500 ppm NAA proved better than all other treatments.
