It is possible to propagate Araucaria araucana by taking cuttings of vertical shoot tips during the middle of summer, or by root in a cold frame. It is important to highlight that if cuttings are taken from the horizontal side branches, it is unlikely this will form an upright tree. Ripe seeds sown in a seed bed are also a key method of propagation for this species.
