Abstract
    Turtle grass was transplanted to an unvegetated, dredged canal and a hand-cleared portion of a flourishing grass bed. Complete or partial success was attained in 7 of 14 methods used. The best method, in which short-shoots (rhizomes removed) were dipped in a solution of plant hormone (Naphthalene Acetic Acid) and attached to construction rods for transplanting, was 100 percent successful and may be suitable for general application.
