: a cutting consisting of a leaf instead of a shoot commonly used in propagating a plant (as begonia, gloxinia, African violet) — see sectional leaf cutting.
Accordingly, what are the examples of stem cutting plants?

Herein, what is stem cutting in plants?
In stem cutting, a healthy vegetative (non-flowering) shoot of a mother plant is cut off, and it is encouraged to form roots. This can be done by putting the shoot in a rooting medium. Once the roots are established, the cutting can be treated as a separate plant and can grow in the desired place.
What are the types of cuttings?
There are two main types of stem cuttings: Softwood cuttings (leafed cuttings) are young soft succulent cuttings with leaves (sometimes pruned). Hardwood cuttings are made of matured, dormant hardwood after the leaves have been shed. Tip cuttings possess terminal buds; basal cuttings are without terminal buds.
Leaf cuttings will take longer to develop a rhizome and roots, but you can still propagate your ZZ Plant with a leaf cutting. Cut off a leaf as close to the stalk as possible, taking a little bit of the stem with it. Place the leaf’s stem into potting mix, about 1 cm deep.
Stem vegetables include asparagus and kohlrabi. Among the edible tubers, or underground stems, are potatoes. The leaf and leafstalk vegetables include brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, lettuce, rhubarb, and spinach. Among the bulb vegetables are garlic, leeks, and onions.
Cutting (by root)
These are long pieces of roots which are used to artificially propagate now plants. For example, lemon, orange, blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry, etc.
A softwood cutting is a piece of plant stem taken from a woody shrub or bush during a particular growth phase. This is how new plant stems change from spring to fall: Herbaceous (young, green growth in spring)
