The lavender plant is a kind of shrub that presents an important demand in the market of cosmetic, aromatherapy, among others. The objective of this research was to study the propagation of lavender cuttings (Lavandula angustifolia Mill) and their growth under shade cloth. Two cultivation treatments were used (soil and pet moss as a substrate) with 4 repetitions of 25 cuttings. The percentage of rooting of the cuttings, percentage of survival to the transplantation of the cuttings, height and diameter of plant cover were evaluated. The rooting percentage of cuttings grown in soil was 4.14 times higher than cuttings grown in pet moss. On the other hand, the survival percentage after transplantation of the rooted cuttings was 96% in both treatments. The cuttings cultivated in soil presented 1.06 times greater height and 1.08 cm greater diameter of coverage than the cuttings cultivated in pet moss. The lavender plants of both treatments showed flowering a month after being transplanted. Furthermore, the root length was affected by the cutting size and the length of the main root was influenced by the amount of secondary roots. There were no pests or diseases in the lavender plants in the study area. Therefore, lavender grown under shade cloth can be a crop with great productive potential for northwestern Mexico.
