Assunto:  Muda/planta - Fran
 
Mensagem:  Fran, isn't a "muda" a piece of a plant that is cut off and then planted to create a new plant?  That's how I remember it, but I was never a gardener.  If that is the case, I don't think "seedling" is an accurate translation.  Look below at what Merriam-Webster says.

Is it possible that in English there are two words for "muda" (starting a new plant - with each referring to a different method), but in Portuguese there is only one? 

I vaguely recall hearing a word to describe in English a plant that began as part of another plant rather than as a seed.  What could it be?


Merriam-Webster
Main Entry: 1seed·ling    Pronunciation Guide
Pronunciation: primarystresssemacrondlieng, -lemacroneng
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): -s
Etymology: 1seed + -ling
1 a : a plant grown from seed as distinguished from one propagated by a vegetative part (as a cutting or layer) b (1) : a tree grown from seed as distinguished from one developed as a stump sucker (2) : a young tree smaller than a sapling c : a nursery plant (as a tree) that has not been transplanted

(Note that a "stump sucker" is a a tree that begins growing from an existing tree.  In Florida this is often seen among banyon trees, and I've seen it among some pines in California.)
