Solution

The correct option is C Vegetative reproduction
Bryophyllum is notable for the leaf buds that are found in the fringes of the leaves. These leaf buds give rise to new plants through vegetative propagation, a form of asexual reproduction. Only one plant is involved and the offspring is the result of one parent. The new plant is genetically identical to the parent.
