A size of propagating material and planting distance experiment was established under 5 shade intensities. The media consisted of Cataño sand and shredded peatmoss mixed 3:1 by volume. The experiment was harvested four times during a 36-month period. The results revealed that, to start a new plantation, the propagating material must be healthy and well developed. The size of harvested cuttings was affected by size of the original planting material. Moreover, the reduction in the planting distance brought a higher gross income per unit area, but mean size and weight of the harvested cuttings were generally reduced at most of the shade percentages tested.
