Abstract


Salvia officinalis L. originates from southern Europe and it was
considered to be able to prolong life. In the Arab world, sage was called "grass of
Bedouins" and it was known that it strengthens the memory and sharpens the
senses. Raw materials are leaves (Salviae folium) or the aerial part (Salviae herba).
Volatile oil and other components in the leaves of sage have choleretic effect,
carminative, against excessive sweating, as well as antibacterial and antifungal
action, being used in preserving meat. In the experiments conducted we used two
products to stimulate rooting cuttings of Salvia officinalis L.: CLONEX gel and
RADI STIM no. 2. From the results obtained it was observed that rapid rooting of
sage cuttings is carried out using as substrates perlite + gel (CLONEX), peat + gel
(CLONEX) and perlite + Radi-Stim no. 2
