gemmation

gemmation A type of vegetative propagation in which small clumps of undifferentiated cells (gemmae) develop on the surface of a plant. These are shed and dispersed to other areas, where they grow to produce new individuals. Gemmation is found only in certain lower plants, such as mosses and liverworts.
