It is widely spread out in the North-East part of Turkey and there are many cultivars. This species has an important and economical value for medicinal and pharmacy industry. Determining suitable conditions for cutting propagation is too important for economical propagation. In this study propagation of cherry laurel with cutting was investigated. The cuttings were treated with 2, 4, 6 and 8 g/l of Indole-3-butryric acid (IBA). Rooting stage was completed in the greenhouse under mist propagation unit. The results were evaluated after 60 days. All the data were evaluated using the analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the groups that showed variance were then subjected to the Duncan test with a significance value p Key words: (Prunus laurocerasus L., ex vitro culture, Indol-3-butyric acid)
