Due to the many advantages of this method, Mulberry is propagated commercially by stem cuttings, such as faster growth and the preservation of cultivar traits from parent plants. Consequently, this study used artificial growth regulators such as IBA and NAA to increase the rooting ability to increase rooting capacity and success rates. The study was conducted in the greenhouse with the mist irrigation system and the cuttings were treated with 7 concentrations of Growth regulators (Control, 500 ppm, 1000 ppm IBA, 500 ppm IBA, 2000 ppm, 3000 ppm NAA and 4000 ppm IBA and planted on the same day. The data were collected after 90 days of the cutting being planted. Results revealed that all cutting treated with growth regulators had a positive effect on the studied characters.  The maximum values of all studied traits were recorded when the cuttings were treated at 1000 IBA and 3000 ppm NAA. But the cuttings untreated with Growth regulators recorded the lowest values on the studied characters in both seasons.
