- Yes, vegetative reproduction is asexual reproduction and clone is also a offspring of asexual reproduction.
- In vegetative reproduction, sex organs are not involved. So, the vegetative reproduction is type of asexual reproduction.
- The clones are formed from the same group cells. They are genetically similar to their source and each other. A potato tuber may yields more than one plants and all the descendants are clones.
- So, the clones are the offsprings of asexual method. Thank you.
