Man, you guys want me to work! I'm retired, remember? It's my "sombra e agua fresca" time of life.
Okay, wiseguys, this is what I believe the meanings to be:
cutting - Something that you cut from a plant that is able to grow roots, survive, and become an adult plant.
sprout - This is a very young plant. I think of a sprout as being just a few inches high. Perhaps it grew from a seed, and perhaps it started growing from a trunk, root, etc.
(Sprout is a common, affectionate nickname for a small child.
It may sound like an insult, but you are merely mentioning the child's
size with the implication that the child is growing and will someday
become and adult. "Hey, sprout! Is you dad at home?")
seedling - A plant that grows from a seed.
shoot = Like the sprout, this is a very young plant but it has grown from a bud. It does not have a root system.
